My mother just told me she hears birds singing and the sun is shining through cloud breaks. She lives off of HYW 6 and West Rd.

She was very lucky that her house only sustained a blown down fence in her backyard. I know it's not over yet but I am very thankful!

My heart goes out to all of the folks who were affected by this storm. It's very unfortunate indeed!

Because of that, the release from Addicks Reservoir had been slated to start at 2 a.m. Monday, and from Barker Reservoir a day later.

Late Sunday night, local officials issued voluntary evacuation notices for residents around the reservoirs — but urged them to wait until daylight to leave the area, if they chose to do so. About 2:30 a.m. Monday, however, the rapidly rising water levels prompted the Army Corps to begin releasing water from both reservoirs.

A few hours later, residents in adjacent neighborhoods — including Canyon Gate at Cinco Ranch to the southwest of Barker Reservoir and Bear Creek Village near Addicks Reservoir — were reporting rising water levels in their streets and approaching their homes.
That wasn't from the releases, though. That was from water flowing into the reservoirs. I can't believe Canyon Gate was allowed to be built where it is. That subdivision is inside the Barker Dam, and butts up to the government owned land.

At least 21 confirmed dead from Harvey as Houston mayor imposes a nightly curfew

So sad that people lost their lives in this mess. 21 so far!

I think the nightly curfew is a wise move.

FYI: If your home is in a FEMA disaster area, you may be able to skip mortgage payments up to 90 days with no penalties, though it's all still due at the end of that 90 days. Other mortgage help may be available as well. Talk to your lender.
