Harvey was a very devastating storm. I saw places around me that flooded, which have never flooded before. Even my own neighborhood had water in the streets. Kids were out with their floats swimming when we got a short break from the rain for a bit. Although I wouldn't recommend it. The bayou that surrounds my neighborhood went way, way over its banks, and into the streets. The weirdest part about Harvey was that areas that have never flooded did, and areas that usually flood, well, some of them didn't. What made this storm such a disaster was due to those areas not being prepared for flooding. Of course no one knew those areas would flood. I watched the news in shock all those days during the storm. Freeways, neighborhoods, businesses, flooded out. Some of those businesses had been around for many years. So much disaster. I still see the after math each day when I drive past houses with debris all over the front yard due to damage within those homes from flooding. Even though most of the water has receded, there is still a lot of damage control, and people who are homeless, and still can't get back to their normal lives. But, I was also amazed. During the storm there were a lot of people that came out into the pouring rain to help those who were stranded due to flooding. These were ordinary folks who came out to help out of the kindness of their hearts. Its because of those people that so many lives were saved.
