Good Morning, it’s Saturday, 2 September 2017 and this is the morning edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed.
There has never been a storm like Hurricane Harvey. Estimates of up to 180,000 homes damaged by Harvey; 19 trillion gallons of rain (Source: USA Today); 9400 commercial flights cancelled; 300,000-500,000 cars destroyed, with the end total perhaps as many as 1,000,000 cars (Source: USA today). It is a disaster on a scale the U.S. has never seen before and the recovery is going to be one of the biggest challenges in U.S. history. Hang in there, Houston. Keep moving forward.
College football season starts today, hopefully a providing a few hours of needed diversion for affected Texas/Louisiana football fans before going back to the round-the-clock efforts to recover. Even if it’s only for an afternoon or an evening, it’s a much-needed break for some.
Today is National Tailgating Day. If you can get out to the game and tailgate, it’s a very good day.
Safe safe, stay dry, and help one other person today.
