Rains in Houston left at least 19 people dead, more than 2000 cars submerged, and close to 200,000 residents without power. Researchers and scientists believe that by mid-June, half of Texas, Louisiana, and small parts of North Mexico, will be under water if the continued as is.
According to weather forecast, by the time the rains end, Houston will pick up more than 300 inches(25 feet above ground level) of rainfall over the five-day period, much of which fell during that second round. This is roughly three-quarters of the average annual rainfall in just five days.
“The state of Texas and Louisiana will be under constant rainfall started around the time of June 9-11. The rainfall will be continuous and more than one have seen in his entire life, Everyone needs to stay alert and if possible evacuate from the city of Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, New Orleans, Baton Rouge.” – says Jack Anderson, a scientist who has predicted this theory at the University of Houston.
Currently social media is under shock after a picture has been shared showing a SHARK swimming down the highway. This is still unknown how the shark ended up on a highway.
“If this is happening right now, I can’t even imagine what’s going to show up on the streets after more rain in next few days.” – says Mike Giller, a restaurant owner in Houston.
According to authorities more than 200,000 gallons of waste-water spilled out because of flooding in the Houston area. Officials are warning against swimming in the affected water as well as thoroughly washing hands before preparing or eating. And who knows there might be a shark too. Currently total damage is estimated at $9 billion.
Experts say that the recent flooding in Houston is only a small bit of what is to come in the next few weeks. If you live in the cities of Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Shreveport, Laredo, Monterrey, or any surrounding areas and cities, spread the word and be prepared.
