    This shows the scope of the damage that this storm has caused.

    A lot of ponds have been lost, but more importantly the loss in human life, personal possessions, economic costs and lives that have been changed forever.
    My prayers are for those affected.

    I can't believe what I am seeing and hearing on the tv and radio. It's horrendous and I am so sorry to hear that lives were lost. I hope and pray this storm takes no more souls. It is wonderful how people are coming together to help each other.

    It is a reminder that we are at the mercy of nature. I pray that the recovery is as quick as humanly possible.

    It will take years, if ever, to recover.

    Those poor people and critters wild and tame

    I thought they told people to stay cuz w/ the size of the city it would be a disaster in itself to try to get all those cars out and where do they go?

    Between 1996 and 2010, the Houston region lost 54,000 acres of wetlands to urban development.
    In the next 40 years with projected population growth, there are an additional 100,000 acres at risk.
    Wetlands mitigate damage from flooding.

    Boy, you southerners can get some rain.
    Makes me think about how much "stuff" is getting washed into the Gulf of Mexico.

    I can a least say where I am the mountains help protect me from bad storms most of the time .I just hope it stays that way .Worst I went through in NJ was a tornado that hit Metuchen and flooding in our area from it and the Edison gas pipe line explosion .Also 3 severe snow storms that dumped mountains of snow on us .So been lucky there .

    Certainly doesn't help minimize an already bad situation with the current 'Dead Zone' in the Gulf of Mexico already about the size of New Jersey (This year it is the largest ever recorded).
    Don't blame Nature for the drainage from flood plains and watersheds for polluting the oceans, blame Man who has contaminated and polluted these same watersheds and flood plains

    Don't worry, I do.
    I don't have a lot of sympathy for human suffering, even though it's not politically correct and makes me quite unpopular at times.
    The Houston area is projected to grow by 4 million people in the next 40 years. Something's gotta give.
    Here, the US, India, China, Europe, Middle East, Africa. Take your pick.
