  1. So Josh has been placed on a sort of missing/unaccounted for type of list. Somebody imo has jumped the gun and it makes it look more dire than it could be. After the unsubstantiated claim earlier by what appears to be some Twitter troll I'm guessing out of an abundance of caution somebody added him to the list. Again his mo has generally been to be quiet for a few days before checking in. With a longer than normal duration event it shouldn't be surprising that it might take a little longer to reconnect. I was texting with him about 30 min or so after his last tweet and giving him the latest recon data. Nothing to that point indicated any problems other than what he already posted and he seemed confident in the structure. He knew what was coming at him. There is just quite a bit of unsubstantiated claims popping up. I'm guessing as the conditions alleviate as Dorian finally moves away that he will hopefully check in soon. Mods feel free to move to the banter thread if needed.
  2. I'm skeptical. He usually gives me a thumbs up right before or soon after getting back on Twitter/Facebook in these bigger events. It's normal for him to decompress for a few days before communicating again. Granted Dorian was a different animal.
  3. As crazy as it sounds I am still in communication with Josh. Let's just say it's getting gnarly there...
  5. MODIS image looks like a 30 mi wide tornado came through for about 40 mi inland.
  6. He has a place further e. Not much but could make a difference. I had him scout mexico beach overnight as i was leaning that way but this morning we both thought pc was solid with that out to the e if he needed to move.
  7. Forget the panhandle. If it keeps deepening it will be one of the strongest to ever hit the US.
  8. Well i know that there were a handful of nitwits that were trying to patch up the small breech that had developed around a creek. From what we heard down here is that the actual levee that protected Columbia lakes from the Brazos hadn't breeched yet but was expected to do so tonight. So its possible that's what happened but supposedly those folks earlier gave up and left. I guess there could have been a few stragglers. Now i can definitely see where there are plenty of people left in parts of west columbia, sweeny and brazoria that hadn't left and are probably panicking now.
  9. I thought earlier that the image looked like it was near the winnie interchange, but thats a good 35-40 miles from Beaumont.
  10. There shouldn't be anybody out there.
  11. The shelter will be at NRG Center which is in the same complex as the stadium.
  12. And lol at this notion that Turner is some kind of rockstar. A guy named 'Mattress Mac' has shown more organizational and leadership skills than not only Turner but the governor of our state. When we talk about small government here in Texas we sure are showing em, cause for about the first 36 hrs it was mainly up to the general pop to coordinate and run rescue operations, including getting shelters up and running.
