Good Morning, it’s Tuesday, 29 August 2017, and this is the morning edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed.
The rain from Hurricane Harvey will not stop; Houston is right in the midst of all the rainfall and no break is in sight. The city continues to flood and rain continued overnight. Now the city is faced with a decision requiring the release of water from holding reservoirs; that release will most likely flood areas that were not previously flooded. President Trump will tour the point of landfall for Hurricane Harvey, visiting Corpus Christi today. The hope is that Harvey will soon move far offshore and out of the area. Link to local tv station (KPRC-TV, NBC) below. Link to National Weather Service below. Hurricane Harvey has done the unthinkable as a storm, stay informed. Everyday is unprecedented.
Today is National Chop Suey Day. Are you good with chopsticks?
