Too many faked and photoshopped pictures showing up on the bane of our existence, social media already. These are all real and largely come from CNN
I had added some identifiers and/or context to a few of them.
Above is the downtown metro Houston. All the brown you see is standing water.
Some near 4000 people were forced to take shelter at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
That’s a view of Tidwell Rd it is a main thoroughfare. All those boats you see are going ack and down the side streets to rescue people and bring them back to this assembly point where they will be transported to a shelter.
Below is Spring Texas, to which we are actually closer than Metro Houston. It is only about 5 to 8 miles from us as you drive, probably closer as the crow flies.
This is our exit off I-45. From this location to our apartment might be 3 miles. The photo was taken the morning of the 28th. As you can see not only is the feeder/service/frontage road flooded by the highway is as well.
Buffalo Bayou flooding a portion of downtown Houston on the 27th.
