Brand new Dallas apartments saved from flooding! Well I just happened to be in the right place at the right time again. My daughter's brand new apartment buildings bottom floor was taking on water in the Halls and 4 or 5 dwellings. The parking garage was flooding and maintenance was busy battling that flood. I was just walking the dog and saw all this. I realized if the main drains in the front were stopped up nothing would drain. I grabbed a scraper made it into a hoe and jumped in and gotter done. Amazingly I didn't trash a single phone nor did I total any trucks or jet skis in this rescue. There majority of the first floor would certainly have had flood damage by unclogging the main drains only two apts had major damage and four with moderate damage. #StateFarm still hasn't payed me for my truck and jet ski that got totalled helping rescue in #Houston during #HurricaneHarvey #TexasFlood #flo#flooding #GrandPrairie #Apartmentsflooding #GrandPrairieFlood #Dal#Dallasd #FtWorthflood #GrandPrairieFlooding #rescue #nofearsearchandrescue #Dallas #WhiskeyRockNRoller #flood #NothingComparedToTheHoustonFlood #Storms #StormDamage #StateFarmSucks #Texas#Texan #TexansHelpingTexans #CatholicLife

Regrann from @freedom_faction - A company called #TributeContracting LLC, which is owned by fashionista Dr. Tiffany Brown received a $156 million contract from the #FederalEmergencyManagementAgency (#FEMA) to deliver 30 million meals to #PuertoRico in the aftermath of #HurricaneMaria, but she only delivered 50,000. According to her website, Brown's company, a minority-owned government consulting firm, has had three FEMA Contracts worth millions of dollars. In addition to her LLC and being an author, she also owns the following: • Tiffany Brown Designs- women’s clothing line • Tiffany Brown Holdings Inc.- Consulting firm that has five divisions: entertainment, vending, radio, food, nonprofit management and book publishing • Luxe Fuel- A beverage delivery software app She obviously has no problem in taking in money and finding ways to make it. However, she took on a contract worth millions in #taxpayerdollars and failed to deliver. The New York Times has the story: The mission for the Federal Emergency Management Agency was clear: Hurricane Maria had torn through Puerto Rico, and hungry people needed food. Thirty million meals needed to be delivered as soon as possible. For this huge task, FEMA tapped Tiffany Brown, an #Atlanta entrepreneur with no experience in large-scale disaster relief and at least five canceled government contracts in her past. FEMA awarded her $156 million for the job, and Ms. Brown, who is the sole owner and employee of her company, Tribute Contracting LLC, set out to find some help. Ms. Brown, who is adept at navigating the federal contracting system, hired a wedding caterer in Atlanta with a staff of 11 to freeze-dry wild mushrooms and rice, chicken and rice, and vegetable soup. She found a nonprofit in #Texas that had shipped food aid overseas and domestically, including to a #Houston food bank after #HurricaneHarvey. By the time 18.5 million meals were due, Tribute had delivered only 50,000. And FEMA inspectors discovered a problem: The food had been packaged separately from the pouches used to heat them. FEMA’s solicitation required “self-heating meals.” 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾 | follow @the_truth_hunters - #regrann

One of the gorgeous dogs down in Katy, TX, rescued from Hurricane Harvey. I swear she has some coyote in her. She IS named Wiley! She's beautiful, smart, and friendly. She is going to the Humane Society of Utah! Go adopt her! You won't be sorry! #BestFriendsAnimalSociety #adoptdontshop #spayneuter #HurricaneHarvey #rescuedog #savealife #nokill2025 #savethemall

#tbt About 2 or 3 days after Hurricane Harvey hit. At the family condo in Rockport, TX. One of the only items that remained unharmed was the bottle of vodka I kept in the fridge. I decided to get a picture in the middle of one of the bedrooms. In its own way, that vodka represents the survival of the human spirit. 🤗 P.S. I put a note on the vodka telling the first responders to help themselves. I’m not a monster, you know. 😊 #hurricaneharvey #rockporttx

WE ARE MOVING BACK HOME TOMORROW!!!!! The best thing about this picture is that my sweet mama (whom we’ve been living with for the past 3 weeks) suggested we head out for lunch and a yummy drink to celebrate the end of the #hurricaneharvey phase of our lives! I grabbed my purse and didn’t look back! 🌺🏡#thewoodlands #thankful #thoughtfullystyled

Stephen F Austin State Park State has been closed since the day Hurricane Harvey helped bring devastating flooding to us. After a Texas Master Naturalists reforestation project at the park, in anticipation of park reopening soon, I went to check on the 2 Texas Parks & Wildlife Geocache Challenge (TGcC is over but caches remain) caches. One ammo can is long gone the other pictured here, GC3XFOM, survived at GZ being under 8 feet or more of muddy Brazos River water for days! Contents were dry as a bone too! @tpwdparks #geocache #geocaching #optoutside #groundspeak #hurricaneharvey

Our team @WAFB is so proud of these adorable students from the @stjames_episcopaldayschool who helped raise close to $1,000 to benefit Emmanuel Episcopal School in Houston, which was devastated after #HurricaneHarvey. Plus, these students collected 50 boxes of books for Gonzales Primary School, all of which was collected in TWO WEEKS.

So for Valentine’s Day mostly girls got flowers, candies, makeup, jewelry etc. well I got a new top (junkyard finds) from @carlosfour.six 😘😘😘he took my car and he said he was going to “surprise me” for Valentine’s Day.

How often does Texas flood? 🚣‍♀️ It seems that more often, we have been experiencing extreme weather events. For instance, the 2015 floods. At that time, I was interning at the Gulf Coast Bird Observatory along the Brazos River. 🐥 We had to close down, because the entire place was flooded. In some areas, the water was 8 feet deep.🌊 That same year, the Blanco River experienced around 40 feet of flooding, creeping up to homes in the hillside.🌊 Last year, Houston experienced one of the largest flood events in its history. 🌊 Mother Nature is not a game. Take care of your land, air, water, and other resources. 🌱 This is OUR earth. 🌍 • • • #blancoriver #texasmonthly #riv#river #flo#flood #climatechange #brazosriver #GCBO #hurricaneharvey #texasstrong #wat#waterfall #flood #flooding #floodzone #floodplain #lowtide #adventure #outdoors #rain #nature #river #riverfront #photography #landscape #riverbed #travel #riverlife #sky #riverside #water #trump #resist #climatechanged

Thank you to our partner @tumitravel for their generous donation of $400,000 that will enable our team to rebuild The Rhodes School for the Performing Arts in Houston. This public charter school offers tuition-free education to low-income minority communities. 550 pre-K through eighth-grade students attended the Rhodes school until it became flooded during Hurricane Harvey.

#throwbackthursday to #PortAransas and rolling through with the #HurricaneHarvey cleanup efforts. Crazy how quickly life can be turned upside down and ripped apart in a few moments. Seeing so much wreckage months after Harvey hit was eye-opening, and a reminder to stay humble, stay hungry, and surround yourself with like minded individuals. ❤ #hustle💯 . . . . . . #atx #Austin #Texas #TexasStrong #tbt #spartanup #headdowneyesforward #trifecta #ocr #training #fitness #allnatural #fitover40 #weightlifting #workout #personaltrainer #usnavy #nevergiveup #comeandtakeit #earnednotgiven #TexasGirl #girlswholift #yogagirl #runnergirl #fitnessgirl #countrygirl

Details matter! As designers, we think through even the smallest detail to make the project a success. This desk is in a model unit from a renovation after Hurricane Harvey.

Hurricane Harvey concrete proof. Our Versatile bows start with a 1/2" solid round bar backed with a vertical bulkhead then welded inside and out. You can still see the concrete imbedded in our 2018 demo Versatile's bow as we hit a concrete driveway head on while performing rescues.

On August 27th officers were flagged down by a citizen that was reporting a man trapped undeneath a bridge due to high water from #Harvey. The water continued to rise and there were no rescue team available at the time. Just Approx 10 brave officers who appeared on the scene and used every tool we had to bring this gentleman to safety. From using ropes, tubes, and our own bodies to do whatever we could to save his life and we had to think quick. The water was rising above our stomachs with bugs crawling on us, but it didn't matter. Long story short, he was able to get close to shore and I was able to quickly grab him and pull him out the water. I gave him a big hug and told him I loved him. This was one of the saddest and scariest moments of my career Ive experienced. I thank God for working with #Brave men and women who #sacrifice their lives everyday to save others and if this would ever happen again, we would do it all over. I still say thanks to everyone including our city who did an excellent job to help save lives during #HurricaneHarvey. This award is for all of you 🙏 Rest In Heaven #SgtPerez 🙏🙏 WeLove You #HPDLifeSavingAward #HoustonStrongForever #Heros #BraveMenAndWomen #HoUSton #ThisAwardIsForOurCity

Took a run through the neighbourhood next to our apartment complex for the first time today. This neighbourhood got hit by #hurricaneharvey as badly as ours did - but the good news is that construction crews are all over the place. Still, it’s heartbreaking to see so many homes in various stages of demolition. But it’s coming back, baby. More good news: this morning we secured a closing date for our loan to rebuild our home. So in a few weeks, after closing, our house will look like the above, and then construction can start. It’s the beginning of the beginning. ✨ #chookooloonksrebuild #makelight
