    3. Never once did she turn the camera around to show the tall majestic skyscrapers no the national news always depict Houston, America's 4th largest city as a small town and tour skyscrapers are not just downtown but their in Uptown,Greenway Plaza, Greenspoint Plaza, Texas Medical Center- largest in the world, Energy corridor, Westlake, The Woodlands so STOP with the SHENANIGANS!

    4. Become part of the volunteer army that aids in the rebuilding effort, there are well organised non profits who help to provide food and shelter, medical aid and relocation. After flooding waters receed (which they always seem to do) volunteer armies go forth and slowly but surely reconstruct peoples lives. Non Profit organisations that really make a difference are, Latter Day Saints, Southern Baptist Convention, Habitat for Humanity, Salvation Army, and the Red Cross not to mention all the other organisations out there. The Military also provide humanitarian services and are prepared for such things.

    5. I can't believe the water flowed into the courthouse. That is supposed to be a very fortified place in Downtown Houston. It houses the counties important offices and files and documents. This area of downtown did not flood like this during Allison. This is incredible.

    6. It's nice to see whites, blacks, mexicans and asians helping one another after this kind of catastrophe, especially when the current President is openly supporting racism: "The neo-nazis/white nationalists/KKK are very fine people." This is proof that you will not divide us Mr. Trump.

    7. Rosa Flores is trash a disgraceful mexican lady that doesn't have any compassion for hurricane or storm victims. just cares about her own career. she needs to be fired asap.

    8. people need to stop blaming the mayor. he made a tough choice and it was the wrong one, hindsight is 20/20. can you imagine if he ordered to evacuate and the storm didnt' hit?

      millions of angry people stuck on the roads while fucking thieves plunder the empty city and destroy property. people dying during evacuation to road rage and panic. the situation was a lose/lose either way.

    9. This is what I don't understand – I watched Fox news for several days before this happened and they were telling us the severity of this …..WHY DIDN'T THE PEOPLE TAKE RESPONSIBILITY – NO MATTER WHAT THE MAYOR SAID?

      Perhaps the people were watching the fake news and fakes were so trying to attack Trump that they did not cover the real news – the disaster coming. The Mayor is a democrat – so perhaps a lot of the people that are in danger are democrats and do not watch the more truthful news like Fox news.

      The governor (republican) DID tell the people to evacuate – fox news has information in this you tube proving this…..It was the mayor (democrat) that told the people to stay. I suspect that since the fake news were so trying to bring down Trump that they focused on that and not on the news about to happen. I watch Fox news, so I was hearing about this for a couple of days before it happened.
