This past Friday, August 25th while most of us were enjoying the beautiful weather here in the Tristate area, Harvey made landfall Friday night as a Category 4 hurricane in Southeast Texas along the Gulf Coast.  And the rain is expected to continue through most of the week according to the National Weather Service, making matters even worse.

My son's friend Roger lives in Houston, TX.   Sunday, he said the water was rising outside his apartment.  Good news was they still had electricity. Here's a pic:
