Harvey Aftermath

Sep 7, 2017

 

Our hearts have been with the folks impacted by Hurricane Harvey and the catastrophic flooding in South Texas.

The following statement was written in an article posted on the UPI website called “Death toll over 60 as Harvey cleanup resumes” by Sara Shayanian…

 “Sept. 5 (UPI) -- The Hurricane Harvey death toll has risen to more than 60 people, as cleanup efforts and disaster relief attempts continue to progress in southeast Texas. Although some may return to find their houses intact, many others will return to find that their homes are virtually swimming pools. Officials say it could take months for water levels to fully decrease. President Donald Trump has asked for a $7.9 billion down-payment to help aid the inundated areas.”

Not only have many homes been destroyed, but the agriculture community has been severely impacted as well. According to The New York Times article “A Flying Cowboy Rides to Rescue Cattle Stranded in Harvey’s Floods” by John Schwartz and Livia Albeck-Ripka,

“Sept.3 -- No numbers have yet been released on the number of cattle missing or dead, but it will certainly be in the thousands. Throughout the weekend, distressed ranchers posted calls for help, as well as images of rescues to Facebook and Twitter, and on the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association site. Even after the water is gone, there will be other problems. Cut fences let cattle intermingle. Some are branded, but many only have numbered ear tags which identify the animals among their herd but not their owners.”

At this point, more than 100,000 homes have been destroyed, and up to one million vehicles have been ruined. According to a preliminary estimate from private weather firm AccuWeather, Hurricane Harvey could be the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history with a potential price tag of 190 billion. This storm has already rendered many areas along the Gulf Coast “uninhabitable” for an extended period of time, and will take years to cleanup and rebuild the affected areas.

According to the economic collapse blog, “What we just witnessed in Houston is being called “a 1,000-year-flood,” and many basic necessities are now in extremely short supply.” During this time of distress, our thoughts and prayers go out to all of the families, friends, farmers, and ranchers affected by this monstrous storm.
