    He immediately called the police so the beast could be removed. Officers taped the gator's mouth shut so it could be taken away."

    I'd have a fit if I found that in my house there are so many hazards and dangers to deal with I can't imagine how hard it must be.
    Yikes! I like most reptiles but man, if I saw a gator in my house, I'd pee my pants. Unless it was a baby. I think baby alligators are so cute!

    Really worried about geevee and BigFatMommyDog. Both of their last posts were on the 28th.

    As of 9 p.m. Friday, the institute had confirmed 28 storm-related deaths in Harris County - all but one from drowning in floodwaters.

    Donated blood today (not in Texas) and the place was packed due to the hurricane. I became a regular donor after a school shooting in my state. It's not for everyone but I was so happy to discover how easy it is for me. I don't think I would have even tried it had I not been completely heartbroken over that shooting. Sending lots of love! I'm not there and cannot imagine the pain people are going through, but hope that Texas can be rebuilt stronger than ever through all the tragedy.

    Unhappy

    Harvey's dead mourned as search for missing gets desperate

    By BRIAN MELLEY, AP / 2:09 am ET Sat Sep 02, 2017

    HOUSTON (AP) — Benito Juarez Cavazos had come to Texas illegally from Mexico on his own as a young teen and was in the process 28 years later of getting his green card when he was swept away in the flood waters left by Hurricane Harvey.

    Cavazos, 42, had recently received a work permit and social security card and was scheduled for an appointment toward getting permanent residency the day after he apparently drowned, his cousins said Friday at a memorial service for the auto body shop worker...

    Trump arrives in Houston for 2nd Harvey visit

    Ken Thomas, Associated Press Published 9:38 a.m. ET Sept. 2, 2017 | Updated 1:07 p.m. ET Sept. 2, 2017

    Houston — President Donald Trump is expected to meet with Harvey victims during his second trip to storm-ravaged Texas in the past week.

    Trump and first lady Melania Trump arrived in Houston on Saturday and were greeted by Gov. Greg Abbott at Ellington Field, a military reserve base in the southeast part of the city. Four Cabinet members including Education Secretary Betsy DeVos are joining the president on this trip.

    The president is expected to meet with Harvey victims at the air field before heading to a relief center. He did not interact with victims on his trip Tuesday to Corpus Christi and Austin.

    Trump will head to Louisiana later Saturday...

    Areas Remain ‘Deadly Dangerous’ in Wake of Harvey, Governor Says

    by Phil Helsel

    Rescues continued Saturday in Harvey-ravaged parts of the eastern Texas coast, and while some people have returned to what remains of their homes, the state's governor warned the danger has not yet passed.

    At least 42 deaths have been attributed to Harvey, which made landfall a week ago and caused major flooding. In the latest in Port Arthur, where more than 490 people have been rescued in the past 24 hours, police said Saturday they discovered the body of an elderly woman as officers went door-to-door conducting welfare checks...

    "The heartbreaking reality of Hurricane Harvey is setting in for Texans who have returned home to find all of their belongings destroyed by the storm.

    House by house, they are tossing their ruined belongings in to the street to be taken away. Where just days ago lay up to 5ft of water now stand rows of battered furniture, clothes and precious personal items, all of which have been taken to pieces.

    Footage of just a few streets in Dickinson, a suburb in southwest Houston with around 18,000 residents, paint a devastating picture. It is among the worst affected areas of the city.

    I'm so sorry it must be devastating.
