8-27-17 9:00 AM EST: The city of Houston is located in a very flood prone area surrounded by bayous, creeks, and such. They have already received 20 inches of rain which is much more than is required for major flooding there. Entrance and exit ramps are impassable, people are stuck. Water is rising fast, and people have been advised to get up on the roofs of their homes if need be.
Wanted to put this thread up here to show film footage of what's going on, latest news reports, etc. Yikes! Not a good place to put a city. Situation critical, catastrophic, and it's just beginning.
