"Some areas of concern. "

Barker Cypress Reservoir. They are releasing water on either side of the reservoir to relieve pressure on the levee walls. It's an Army Corps of Engineers structure but it's old. If those levees break, it will be a Katrina sized disaster. Same for Addicks Reservoir.

The Brazos River has not crested yet and they are giving a mandatory evacuation order for those affected people. The Guadalupe River in Victoria, Texas is going to be an issue also.

There are a lot of good hearted guys with boats showing up all over. Some of the places they are putting their boats in may not go very far though. Their is no flood map that I know of. Google Earth may be helpful now if the pictures are current.

I just talked with my sister and she is doing fine. Trapped, but high and dry. The rescue boats know where they are.

I just wish this damn rain would stop.
