Good Morning, it’s Thursday, 31 August 2017, and this is the morning edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed.
The damage from Hurricane Harvey continues. In Houston, rescue operations continue. To the east, there is flooding in Beaumont and Port Arthur and into Louisiana. Helicopters are crowding the sky (the airspace has been cleared of non-emergency traffic) as rescue missions continue. Donations are pouringin into the state from all over America.The entire Texas National Guard (12,000 people) has been mobilized to help and another 10,000 National Guard troops are coming to help from surrounding states. Water is slowly receding but the real impact will not be known for months or perhaps years.
Today is National South Carolina Day. Beach music anyone? (yes..it is 31 August..yesterday was a different National Day..)
