Most of Houston 'now dry,' as recovery begins

September 1, 2017 by Mark Ralston, With Michael Mathes In Port Arthur
The First Baptist Church in Rockport, Texas, is in ruins after Hurricane Harvey

Houston was limping back to life on Friday one week after Hurricane Harvey slammed into America's fourth-largest city and left a trail of devastation across other parts of southeast Texas.

"Most of the city is now dry," Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner told MSNBC. "And so we're turning to recovery and housing, especially for individuals whose homes were greatly damaged."

As flood waters receded in Houston and residents began slowly returning home other nearby towns such as Rockport, Beaumont and Port Arthur were struggling to get back on their feet.

Rescue workers were still scouring storm-ravaged southeast Texas by air and by boat looking for victims trapped in their flooded homes.

Harvey has been blamed thus far for at least 42 deaths and tens of billions of dollars of damage.

'We need the resources yesterday'

Turner estimated that around 40,000 to 50,000 homes in the Houston area had suffered damage after Harvey made landfall last Friday as a Category Four hurricane, and said federal assistance was needed urgently.

"We need the resources now," Turner told CNN. "In fact let me back that up. We need the resources yesterday."

President Donald Trump visited Texas on Tuesday and is scheduled to return to the Lone Star State again on Saturday.

"Texas is healing fast thanks to all of the great men & women who have been working so hard," he tweeted Friday morning. "But still so much to do. Will be back tomorrow!"

Turner, the Houston mayor, said providing housing is "critically important."

"People can't stay in shelters forever," he said.

An estimated 30,000 residents of the Houston area sought refuge from the storm in public shelters and many will be returning to homes that are now uninhabitable because of flood damage.

Besides their homes, tens of thousands of residents also lost their vehicles in a state where having a car is considered a must.

Debris removal a priority

Removing debris was also essential, the Houston mayor said.

"People returning to their homes, they're putting all of that debris out," he said. "You can't leave it out there. That will create a public health hazard."

Texas Governor Greg Abbott told ABC his state was facing a "massive, massive clean-up process."

"People need to understand this is not going to be a short-term project," he said. "This is going to be a multi-year project for Texas to be able to dig out of this catastrophe."

"As the waters recede in Houston, of course they're still rising over in Beaumont," he said.

A major hospital in Beaumont began evacuating its 200-odd patients on Thursday after the city's water supply failed and a dozen premature babies were airlifted out on Friday.

The authorities in Crosby, Texas, were monitoring a chemical plant meanwhile where fires broke out Wednesday night.

Officials ordered residents living within 1.5 miles of the facility to evacuate amid concerns about the fumes emanating from the plant, which produces organic peroxides—compounds that can combust if not cooled to the right temperature.

Rachel Moreno of the Fire Marshal's Office said there had been no further fires or smoke overnight at the chemical plant in Crosby, 25 miles (40 kilometers) northeast of Houston

"We have been hearing popping noises, which is the organic peroxides decomposing," Moreno said.

Houston Astros coming home

In Rockport, where Harvey made landfall, the schools were closed and many residents were without power.

Telephone and electricity poles were down in many parts of the town of 10,000 on the Gulf Coast. Rockport's First Baptist Church was in ruins, its roof ripped off, and many homes were just piles of shattered debris.

Vice President Mike Pence visited Rockport on Thursday and promised to provide assistance to residents of the battered town.

In a sign of a return to normality in Houston, the city's Major League Baseball team, the Houston Astros, announced they would return home for games on Saturday and Sunday against the New York Mets.

The Astros abandoned their home stadium, Minute Maid Park, this week for three games in Florida against the Texas Rangers.

"We hope that these games can serve as a welcome distraction for our city that is going through a very difficult time," said Astros president Reid Ryan in a statement. "We hope that we can put smiles on some faces."

While baseball was coming back, schools in the Houston area were assessing when they could reopen with most looking at Tuesday of next week, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Schools had been scheduled to resume classes on Monday August 28 after the annual summer break but those plans were put on hold by the storm.

Richard Carranza, superintendent of Houston's largest school district, told the Chronicle that at least 35 schools had sustained water or wind damage or lost power during the storm.

So with school still out, many families with children headed instead to Houston Zoo—which partially reopened—and could be seen there early in the morning, strolling the grounds.

From news article:
Rockport's First Baptist Church was in ruins, its roof ripped off, and many homes were just piles of shattered debris.
Vice Pres. Pence visited Rockport on Thursday and promised to provide assistance to residents of the battered town.
I had my ABC24 TV news channel on in the background. If I heard correctly, Vice President Mike Pence joined some of the congregation "in prayer" in front of the above ruined church; just 'demolished' by an ACT OF GOD! The question which arises is: TO WHOM or WHAT were Pence and those churchgoers "praying"? And for WHAT were they "praying"? The damage was DONE BY GOD...unless they do not believe in 'act of god'; in which case it's too late to 'pray' to Hurricane Harvey to 'leave them/their church alone'; yet even more too late if they wanted to 'prevent' Hurricane Harvey/AGW-warming from 'happening'! Makes you wonder how INSANE religious/superstitious organizations/practices, Pence/congregation are. Clueless deniers! :(

It is truly amazing to have this clueless idiot, RealityCheck, come on here to make the kind of comment that the fool did about religion. The pile of dog dung is a subscriber to one of the most destructive faith based religious in the world that believes that the essential for all life trace gas, CO₂ in some magical way was the cause of this hurricane. The stupid fool says this: "they wanted to 'prevent' Hurricane Harvey/AGW-warming from 'happening'!" With this total fools view, if humanity, to day, emits no more CO₂ then it must follow that there would be no more hurricanes, tornados, heat waves or killer cold fronts to disturb this imagined utopia that would emerge in RealityCheck's perfect world.

Being the typical alarmist frothing at the mouth over something that the dip dung doesn't understand, RealityCheck does not appear to be astute enough to realize that their religion of AGW is not about saving humanity or the planet but over gaining control by those that assume that they have the right to exercise that control because they are just naturally better than the unwashed masses, in their warped minds.

I know from experience that not all Australians are as stupid and insane as this clueless one commenting on something he has no idea about. Dr. John Reid does know what he is talking about.
"Global warming is the central tenet of this new belief system in much the same way that the Resurrection is the central tenet of Christianity. Al Gore has taken a role corresponding to that of St Paul in proselytizing the new faith…My skepticism about AGW arises from the fact that as a physicist who has worked in closely related areas, I know how poor the underlying science is. In effect the scientific method has been abandoned in this field." — Atmospheric Physicist Dr. John Reid, who worked with Australia's CSIRO's (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization) Division of Oceanography and worked in surface gravity waves (ocean waves) research.

You're not even bright enough to understand that there have been fewer hurricanes such as this in the past several years that in recorded history, yet idiots like you and lie, as usual, about this and everything else you bring up. Shut up and try to help people instead of what you are doing and that is to hurt and try to handicap rescue efforts. In short, shut up and go to hell because you are of NO value, at all. What or if they believe in another religion that is different from yours where a trace gas is a devil is none of your business.

If you can, idiot, tell me how the last Ice age began and ended and explain just how CO₂ played any part in these known events. How about this EVENT, you stupid fuck?
"The end of the Younger Dryas, about 11,500 years ago, was particularly abrupt. In Greenland, temperatures rose 10°C (18°F) in a decade (Alley 2000(link is external)). Other proxy records, including varved lake sediments in Europe, also display these abrupt shifts (Brauer et al. 2008(link is external)).

What did CO₂ have to do with the Roman warm period when sea levels were so, so much higher than today because it was so much warmer than today?

How about the Medieval Warm period, dumb fuck?
The Medieval Warm Period (MWP) was a time of unusually warm weather that began around 1000 AD and persisted until a cold period known as the "Little Ice Age" took hold in the 14th century. Warmer climate brought a remarkable flowering of prosperity, knowledge, and art to Europe during the High Middle Ages.

Explain what CO₂ had to do with this global condition.
"Ikaite crystals incorporate ocean bottom water into their structure as they form. "We showed that the Northern European climate events influenced climate conditions in Antarctica," Lu says. "More importantly, we are extremely happy to figure out how to get a climate signal out of this peculiar mineral. A new proxy is always welcome when studying past climate changes."

"Energy is fundamental to economic growth and environmental sustainability. Access to affordable, reliable and sustainable energy is vital to ending extreme poverty and promoting shared prosperity. Modern energy services can help improve the quality of life for millions around the world and underpin progress in all areas of development.
Around 1.1 billion people worldwide still live without access to electricity – most of them in Africa and Asia -- which has an impact on children's education, public safety, services, and job creation. Another 2.8 billion rely on wood or other biomass for cooking and heating, resulting in indoor and outdoor air pollution that causes about 4.3 million deaths each year."

More than 95% of these people are either in sub-Saharan African or developing Asia, and around 80% are in rural areas.

Mark Twain sure must have had an idea about what people like you thought about this issue that is now a religion for those who, like you, believe that the essential for all life on earth, CO₂, with no proof, is going to cause a runaway warming of the planet when it never did in the past when the content in the atmosphere was 1950 ppm during Jurassic Period and mean surface temp was 16.5 C.

Al Gore has taken a role corresponding to that of St Paul in proselytizing the new faith…My skepticism about AGW arises from the fact that as a physicist who has worked in closely related areas, I know how poor the underlying science is. In effect the scientific method has been abandoned in this field." — Atmospheric Physicist Dr. John Reid, who worked with Australia's CSIRO's (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization) Division of Oceanography and worked in surface gravity waves (ocean waves) research.

I only raised the Russian Troll Factory angle because your paid-for-shill-rants are obviously instigated by Russian-Trump/Fossil Lobby TRAITORS TO HUMANITY organizations that LIED to 'manufacture' confusion among the public regarding AGW issue which required co-operative TIMELY action long ago. You, your 'paymasters' are complicit in setting us back DECADES. If not for your misinformation/stupidity/greed, we would BY NOW have had all the green energy, backups we could have needed. It was CONSERVATIVE govts (like those led HERE in OZ by Tony Abbot and now Malcolm Turnbull; and THERE in USA by GOP controlled congress) who FRONTED for fossil interests to sabotage attempts at implementing green strategies. So I have NO respect for Conservative govts on AGW problem/solutions, JD.

"Hurricanes of 1795--Two hurricanes assaulted Virginia in August 1795, and destroyed the crops of another hero of the American Revolution, Thomas Jefferson. The two storms, which were ten days apart, caused the Appomattox River to crest more than 12 feet above flood stage at the city of Petersburg, which was the highest level reached in 70 years.

And JD, you are misinformed. CURRENT e-vs already have good range; and if not for your political/business CROOKS delaying/sabotaging for decades, we could have had all the e-vs and infrastructure to go with it by now. If that had been the case during Harvey event, the e-vs would have already been charged by wind/power/other renewables and ready to go before Harvey affected power distribution grid.

AND charging en-route also at battery-storage energy 'dumps' as explained.

AND for bonus, individual/business solar/wind power generation on residential/businesses rooftops/land could have prevented total power loss to people/businesses DURING the hurricane for those who couldn't evacuate for whatever reason (emergency workers and late-evacuees etc).

A New Study Takes The Wind Out Of Wind Energy
That amounts to a subsidy of $6.44 per million BTU of energy produced. For comparison, in 2008, the Energy Information Administration reported that subsidies to the oil and gas sector totaled $1.9 billion per year, or about $0.03 per million BTU of energy produced. In other words, subsidies to the wind sector are more than 200 times as great as those given to the oil and gas sector on the basis of per-unit-of-energy produced.

"Name: replace coal baseload power with wind power
"Description: Replace 700 GW of baseload coal-generated electricity with 2000 GWp of wind-generated electricity.
This requires the construction of "2 million 1-MW-peak windmills (50 times the current capacity) "occupying" 30 million hectares, on land or offshore". The difference in energy generation (addition of 2000 GWp wind vs. reduction of 700 GW of coal) arises from an accounting for the intermittent nature of wind power.
Land use requirements of approximately 30 million hectares, roughly the size of the US state of Arizona, should not pose a threat to this large-scale deployment of wind turbines."

A person using logic would assume that since Trump's predecessor in the office of president for eight years, Barack Hussein Obama, who was very much a true believer in this hoax of human caused climate change, seemed to have no effect, at all, on these hurricanes striking the nation. After Obama took office, the EPA issued 2,827 new final regulations, equaling 24,915 pages in the Federal Register, totaling approximately 24,915,000 words.

The last major hurricane to hit the continental U.S. was Hurricane Wilma, which struck Florida on Oct. 24, 2005. According to NOAA, four major hurricanes hit the continental United States that year. They included Wilma, Rita, Katrina, and Dennis.

But since Wilma, no Category 3 or above hurricane has made landfall in the continental United States, making June 24, 2017 the end of a record 140 months without a major hurricane strike.

@J Doug.

Wow, are you confused! Stalin, Hitler etc were TYRANTS using intimidation, death squads etc to corrupt whatever 'socialism/democracy' they paid lip service to. Like past tyrants abusing 'capitalism' to steal, destroy lives by abusing power/monopoly to corrupt whatever good was inherent in 'responsible' capitalism mediated by socially responsible govts to prevent unconscionable damage/exploitation (recall how the UK govt had to rescue the railway barons and the banks in the early days of 'unfettered/exploit' capitalism?). You are so ill-informed about everything you spam/shill about that it's difficult to tell whether you are so stupid/ignorant in reality or just pretending so that you can spam/shill away with hardly any thought behind what you regurgitate from your Troll Factory paymasters. Get an education and some integrity, then come back and try to make some sense instead of spamming stuff you have no clue about in the wider/correct context, JD. Good luck!

It is now obvious how such a stupid, idiotic fuck such as RealityCheck can actually believe that carbon dioxide drives the climate. RealityCheck Is so uninformed that the stupid jerk has never heard about Karl Marx and how Lenin went back to Russia after the revolution began to spread this philosophy that has been responsible for the deaths of millions of people, socialism/communism. As stupid and uninformed as you are, how do you manage to exist?

OK, dumb fuck, do you think that renewables and socialism managed to accomplish this below.

JD, you're naively/intentionally ignoring facts: MANY types of tyrannical murderous regimes have arisen historically and in present times; and ANY regime that has NO social conscience/inclusion constitution and fairness, egalitarian based laws/ethics that give expression/effect to said constitution, is NOT a socialistic democracy, but rather just another type of Tyrannical murderous regime run by gang imposing their will by force/fear/propaganda lies etc.

It sure didn't cause the last ice age or cause the earth to recover from it.

Get your head out of your ass and read something, and maybe learn something, RealityCheck.
Read, as I have, "Mao: The Unknown Story" by Jung Chang & Jon Halliday to find out how great your communism/socialism is in practice.

"Four hurricanes occurred simultaneously on two occasions. The first occasion was August 22, 1893, and one of these eventually killed 1,000- 2,000 people in Georgia and South Carolina. The second occurrence was September 25, 1998, when Georges, Ivan, Jeanne and Karl persisted into September 27, 1998 as hurricanes. Georges ended up taking the lives of thousands in Haiti. In 1971 from September 10 to 12, there were five tropical cyclones at the same time; however, while most of these ultimately achieved hurricane intensity, there were never more than two hurricanes at any one time.

I do not need to be reminded of Tyndall's 1859 lab experiments that do not prove that humanity's CO₂ emissions are warming the planet. In the real world, other factors can influence and outweigh those lab findings and that is why these experiment must deal with the real world and not computer models that do not have the ability to factor in all of the variables that effect the earth's climate. If RealityCheck cannot provide a verifiable experiment regarding the present amount of CO₂ in the atmosphere and how it effects the climate and creates their anthropogenic global warming, then believing that it does so is akin to believing that Santa Clause is real and you need to be good to get something left under the tree.

The Maunder Minimum
Early records of sunspots indicate that the Sun went through a period of inactivity in the late 17th century. Very few sunspots were seen on the Sun from about 1645 to 1715 (38 kb JPEG image). Although the observations were not as extensive as in later years, the Sun was in fact well observed during this time and this lack of sunspots is well documented. This period of solar inactivity also corresponds to a climatic period called the "Little Ice Age" when rivers that are normally ice-free froze and snow fields remained year-round at lower altitudes. There is evidence that the Sun has had similar periods of inactivity in the more distant past. The connection between solar activity and terrestrial climate is an area of on-going research.

You remind of a toddler playing on the floor with 'disjoint' pieces of a picture puzzle which have fallen from a table out of reach. The toddler has no idea of what the 'picture' may be; nor does the toddler know what to make of each piece due to its 'disconnection' from the whole.

So the toddler blithely manipulates, sucks, chews and throws disjoint pieces willy nilly, never having even an inkling of the whole picture shown on the puzzle box lid tantalizingly out of its reach/ken on the table.

Do you even realize the reality around you now, let alone over the eras of continental plate techtonics and changes in ocean/air currents which if put together as a whole picture will give the 'trending picture' for climate evolution NOW, mate?

ACE data for the Atlantic hurricane season is less reliable prior to the modern satellite era, but NOAA has analyzed the best available information dating back to 1851. The 1933 Atlantic hurricane season is considered the highest ACE on record with a total of 259[10]. For the current season or the season that just ended, the ACE is preliminary based on National Hurricane Center bulletins, which may later be revised.

What was the level of atmospheric CO₂ in 1933 since now you stupidly believe that it has everything to do with this year's active hurricane season? I do not need to be reminded that you NEVER have a valid answer to any question, only stupid attacks such as your latest one.

@J Doug.

Tell that to all the nations suffering unprecedented and back-to-back climate catastrophes THIS past year alone, mate. You are a peculiarly malignant, unconscionably selfish spam-shill-bot programmed to be incapable of realizing you are taking that Troll Factory's 'Thirty Pieces of Silver' to betray your own species in general as well as your own family/friends' future survival/well being in particular. What a 'nasty piece of work' you are to be working for that nasty Troll Factory paying you to betray your intellect, your family/friends and humanity at large. That 'thirty pieces of silver' will choke you eventually, Judas. I pity you, JD.
