From a Houstonian, on farcebook:
Cort McMurray
15 hrs ·

Things non-Houstonians need to understand:

1. The streets and many of the public parks here are designed to flood. We sit just 35 feet above sea level, and most of the city is as flat as a pool table. We average about 50 inches of rain a year. The streets and parks serve as temporary retention ponds, accommodating slow, steady drainage through our bayous.

2. We average about 50 inches of rain a year, but in the last 48 hours, many areas of greater Houston received 25 to 30 inches of rain. That's six to nine month's worth of rain, in two days. The drainage system, which works well in normal conditions, was overwhelmed. Officials are calling this an "800 year flood": that means there was a one in 800 chance of its occurrence. Even with advance notice, there was little means of preparing for this.

3. It is impossible to evacuate a city the size of Houston. Harris County is 1700+ square miles, with a population of 6.5 million people. How do you evacuate 6.5 million people? During the hours leading to Hurricane Rita's landfall, tens of thousands of Houstonians attempted evacuation. The traffic jams lasted for days. One hundred people died. So far, six Houstonians have died in Hurricane Harvey, all of them (as far as I have heard) drowned in their automobiles. For more than a decade, the local mantra has been "shelter in place and hunker down." That's hard, but it's the right approach.

4. Some outsiders are treating this disaster with schadenfreude: Texans helped elect an anti-big government president, and now we're going to need big government help. Houston is the bluest spot in Texas, and voted Clinton in 2016. Suggesting this is karmic payback for backing Trump is as inaccurate (and offensive) as Pat Robertson's suggestion that Hurricane Katrina was God smiting sinners. We really aren't thinking Red or Blue right now. We are taking a royal beating, all of us. Disasters don't care about ideology.

5. You are going to feel this. Gas prices are going to skyrocket. Oil refined products, everything from PVC pipe to dry cleaning fluid, will rise in price. The stock market will take a hit. New Orleans is a fantastic city, but it's not a major economic force. Houston is the center of the nation's energy industry. It's home to dozens of Fortune 500 companies. And 85% of it is under water. It may be this way for weeks. The aftermath of Katrina captured the world's attention. The aftermath of Harvey is going to grab you by the lapels, and shake you 'til you're cross eyed.
Good thing the Oil industry is designed to handle hurricanes and flooding, just like the Houston area itself is, and there will be hardly a bump caused by this, to the economy. The Oil industry is among the best at being flexible and resilient. This ain't their first rodeo.

It's hilarious reading these posts, first they talk about how resilient the Houston area is, then go on and on with a list of laments how the oil industry in the area will be raped and victimized.

He's not only factually wrong, he's totally clueless about how grave the red/blue divide is. Now that I know Houston is Hillary country, I feel glee about the whole thing.

Yeah that guy got really MAD when I replied with what I posted here. Then I let him know we have vast oil reserves the President can release if need be, and this fact alone is what stabilizes the market in times such as this. It's why his dire predictions have never come true for any hurricane in mankind history.

Peddlers gonna peddle. Saw lots of Houston CCTV footage of looting on Gab, btw. The usual suspects, of course.

Fine with me. Take it out of the NAACP and LaRaza budgets.
