  3. Best of luck to you and your family! (And you deserve to go into the Sibling Hall of Fame.)
  4. Here's the Prime Minister saying they have a mandatory evacuation of the entire island - More from Barbuda on twitter account of BBC reporter on the ground there. https://twitter.com/BBCLBicker
  5. They are trying to get everyone off the island of Barbuda before Jose gets there.
  6. The cranes are going to be a huge issue. Just saw a news report this morning and they're all over Miami.
  7. Interesting article from a couple of years ago about Miami's high-rises. Some of which were repaired/rebuilt after Wilma didn't do it to the new, stricter code. And then there's one with "impact-resistant glass" - http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/nation-world/national/article24739255.html
  8. Many, many pictures of St. Martin here - https://www.facebook.com/stmartinnewsnetwork/
  9. Prime Minister of Barbuda: Over 90% of structures have been demolished.
  10. https://twitter.com/internetofzings American vacationing in St. Maarten with a few videos of damage he posted while in the eye. A bit concerned about him because he hasn't posted in a couple of hours and he looked to be right on the water.
  11. Woman on roof of apartments with 30 other people interviewed this morning on GMA https://twitter.com/GMA/status/902143972482605057
  12. I'm seeing many, many recent requests for help on twitter from the Meyerland area. 911 not working and besides Coast Guard number, is there anything else they can try? Has anyone seen any other phone numbers?
  13. Update on the trucker in the flooded truck seen from the bridge by the KHOU reporter - he was just rescued. Another station has taken over their feed - I'm watching on KHOU Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/KHOU11/
  14. 281-464-4851 Coast Guard phone number for immediate assistance and roof rescue. Do not use social media because they don't monitor it. Over 100 people have been hoisted already by helicopters.
  15. Fox 26 just reported that the KHOU building is now under 20 ft of water and the staff has evacuated to the Federal Reserve building. On Allen Parkway the water is up to the stoplights.

  22. Interesting blog post from a guy who specializes in storm surge (and also lives on the Gulf and is familiar with the area) - http://wxshift.com/news/blog/harveys-rain-and-surge-flooding-could-be-catastrophic He is concerned with areas along the west of Galveston Bay (like League City) getting compound flooding, where the storm surge prevents the rainwater runoff from draining.
