It is supposed to crest at 109 feet!

    The big problem for us is there is flooding all around us! The area evacuated earlier is between us and I-45. That is pretty high up but it also crosses the Jacinto River to the North. I don't want to run into a flood! Besides, I am broke and can't even afford to tank up my car, let alone pay for a hotel room. I will try and make sure my daughter and her boys leave, but I see myself as stuck. Someone has to stay and shoot any trespassers. I have enough guns and ammo to start a small war! Any guys stopping here will pass on to a house not defended.

    Yeah I can see your point I know folks that winter in Florida and during a flooding lots of looting occurs total anarchy I was told.
    I've been to the NE Louisiana Bastrope in 1984 I've got a 6 pound Largemouth Bass from Clear Lake, Richland Parish on the wall they mounted it real fast on an assembly line type taxidermy shop in Monroe.
    I didn't know how you use the Flood stage measurement system but I've seen how fast water can rise in Oklahoma City & Joplin Mo being caught in some storms there.

    Take Care of yourself!

    I see Flood Warning for Harris & Fort Bend Counties Texas.... Flood stage is 164.2 feet this sounds like a huge amount of water they say (If in doubt get out!)

I don't know if it pays to try to leave.

    Daemon of Decay has family near here, I believe.

    If they tell you to evacuate do so. Otherwise you risk your life and the lives of those who will try to rescue you. Material possessions can be replaced, lives can't.
