The Nightshift: 27 August 2017

Editor’s Note: Hurricane Harvey has blown into Texas and hit with unprecedented force. In addition to flooding in all parts of Texas, it also knocked out the power to The Media Bunker, so things are running late today and will probably run late tonight and tomorrow and maybe Tuesday. Who knows. Harvey was one of those “100 year events”, which seem to come a lot more frequently than they came in the past. More on this via our special series on Harvey, Stormwatch.

Good Morning, it’s Sunday afternoon, 27 August 2017, and this is the afternoon edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed.
Hurricane Harvey has brought death, destruction, flooding, power outages, and a massive disruption of life into Texas. As of this post, it’s still going strong, dropping up to four inches of rain an hour on some parts of the state–Houston in particular. If you’re in the storm area, heed the advice of the pros: stay safe, don’t move, don’t get on the roads, and wait for the storm and its effects to recede. The sun will come out again; be sure you’re here to see it. A link to The Weather Channel is at the bottom of the Nightshift Newspapers list (below).
