Good Morning, it’s Friday, 1 September 2017, and this is the morning edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed.
Hurricane Harvey continues to dominate the news. Houston is drying out and water is receding–in some areas. The recovery and repair process will be long, painful, and expensive. Lots of charities have been created to help the city; most notable is JJ Watt (Houston Texan’s NFL football player) who started a small fund for donations with a goal of reaching $250,000 and has now topped $13.0 million. Texans and American continue to help as money, volunteers, and supplies pour into the city.
Next big worry: gasoline supplies. The hurricane shut down gasoline refineries along the gulf coast. Gas stations are running out of fuel, prices are spiking, and the national Labor Day weekend is upon us (lots of demand for gasoline). Authorities say that refineries are being re-started and supplies will be available, but it will take a while to “normalize”–maybe as much as a month.
Today is National Food Bank Day (Donate, please). It’s also National No Rhyme (Nor Reason) Day, for which we have no explanation.
Safe safe, stay dry, and help one person today.
