Freak Posted September 12, 2008 Report Share Posted September 12, 2008 Having worked in the public safety/emergency services field for several years, I would like to wish all costal and inland residents of Texas the best of luck. This storm is larger than Katrina, and its projected landfall point could be devastating, with effects on the whole country. I think the following statement from the National Weather Service sums it up:LIFE THREATENING INUNDATION LIKELY!ALL NEIGHBORHOODS...AND POSSIBLY ENTIRE COASTAL COMMUNITIES...WILL BE INUNDATED DURING THE PERIOD OF PEAK STORM TIDE. PERSONSNOT HEEDING EVACUATION ORDERS IN SINGLE FAMILY ONE OR TWO STORYHOMES MAY FACE CERTAIN DEATH. MANY RESIDENCES OF AVERAGECONSTRUCTION DIRECTLY ON THE COAST WILL BE DESTROYED. WIDESPREADAND DEVASTATING PERSONAL PROPERTY DAMAGE IS LIKELY ELSEWHERE.I have never seen the NWS make a statement that strong in all my years of service. I'll be on the fringe of the worst at its current predicted course, knowing that me follow Texans will be much much worse. Please take a moment to give these people, and all the first responders your thoughts or prayers.Godspeed... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
