I have challenged two local school districts, local churches, and our communities to fill my cattle trailer with donations and would like to deliver either Friday afternoon or Saturday morning. If anyone knows of a shelter to take this to please let me know. I will be coming from the Groveton/Apple Springs area and can come 59 or 45.

I live on 10 acres in Aransas Pass. All my barns are on the ground,boats are flipped over, trees are down and fences are damaged.

But I say that to say this...the house is ok enough and we are ok.

I don't need immediate help but I would be willing to let you guys store trailers, set up campers, or whatever will help those around me.

Been a Hectic day around here in Baytown as well as many other places in the area. Saw a couple TBH stickers on trucks today as we were boating in to some flooded neighborhoods. Its been a heartfelt experience seeing all the folks come together!! About I know is I10 at the San Jacinto is flooded as well as at Cedar Bayou just west of Mont Belvieu. FM 1942 between Crosby and Mont Belvieu as well. We plan to be back at it at daylight to see what help we can lend. Yall stay safe and GOD speed!

There are folks meeting up at the Kroger at Kirkwood and Briar Forrest. Flat bottoms, jet skis and canoes worked there today bit bigger boats couldn't launch. Water is flowing steady through there from the Addicks reservoir. No official coordination there but lots of needs.

If it's possible to get this as a main drop down until rescue work is done , that would be super helpful. This is great though, thanks

Folks. If anyone needs any specific help let me know, I am in Willis. We are supporting local shelters and churches but i know we can do more. A few things I know I can offer:

-I have 2.5 acres of dry land. I can cross fence and take care of a few large animals.
-I can probably shelter a few dogs
-if you are displaced but have a travel trailer, or we can borrow on, we can probably run power and water and you can stay on my property. Big travel trailers will be a challenege but we can always figure it out
- as soon as I get my truck back from mechanic today. I can haul stuff in or out.

Please feel free to text, call or email.

Just went thru there northbound. Came into Houston on 290 east in a motor coach taking nursing staff from Dallas VA to Houston VA. Headed back to Bonham now. 45 is moving both north and south. Not sure about 59/69 to Porter.

It should be noted to the anti hunting crowd that most of the "Rescue Rangers" have boats because they hunt and fish.

Pix won't load. Anyway I'm replacing it with something new. I believe it's enough to do a good sized living room. If anyone thinks it can be used hopefully to the victims but regardless. Come get it, watch your speed in the neighborhood. Hate to send it to the fill.

Here is why officials do not want everyone rushing down to try to help - everyone means well but it can cost more lives - God bless these men who gave their lives - very very sad
