Press Clippings:
Good Morning, it’s Monday, 27 August 2017, and this is the morning edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed.
Hurricane Harvey has flooded out the city of Houston. It’s now Venice on the Gulf, with major highways and streets flooded and a local TV station asking for anyone with a boat to help get employees to the station. Addicks Dam/Reservoir is releasing water because the Army Corps of Engineers–think Hurricane Katrina–is worried the dam will break. The result will be the flooding of up to a thousand homes in the area. Local TV is wall-to-wall with storm coverage and the whole situation is terrifying. No one is left unscathed by yet another “storm of the century”. Are the centuries getting shorter? Or have we finally done it to ourselves with the climate changes? Weather Channel link below. Houston local TV link below. Stay safe if you’re in Houston.
