I don't know if anyone here is online that lives in the flooded areas of Texas, but I do hope you
have located a safe place to stay.

People that have not lost everything do not realize the devastation involved not to mention the
toll it takes on a person.

To this day, I some times think I have this or that and I go looking for it. Then I realize, I did
have it but lost it in the fire. There are times I am sitting at my desk and receive an email from
someone asking about such and such. I reply back, 'oh yeah, I have that, get right back at ya'
and as I fumble thru my desk file folders, I realize, I lost it in the fire.

It can literally take YEARS to recover. For example, home owners insurance can take an entire
year or longer to settle. Many people do not have home owners insurance, flood insurance, or

It took me almost 4 years to rebuild. FOUR YEARS. For many people it can take even longer.

I relay this because there are people that don't realize what is involved. They think 'oh their
insurance will get them back on track in no time' or 'the government will bail them out' or some
other thoughts. For many people, it does not work like that.

In addition, the items you lose, they always say can be replaced. Well, not everything can.

Mother Nature can be cruel in most all areas of the world. Even now, I still have things that
are not finished at my house.

Of course, the most important thing is to be safe. So if you are someone that has had to leave
stuff behind due to the flood or any other devastation for that matter, just know there are
people that do know exactly how you feel.

Stay Safe.

Have been through a flood a few times (in upstate New York) of all places. Can tell you until you go through it up close and personal you have no idea how much damage water can do. I currently have a houseful of clothes and now I have a place to donate,

Good to see alot of people showing concern for Texas. We all need to donate at least a dollar to the Red Cross and Salvation Army. We need to get people out of there prompto with a safe place to stay. Very glad you are coming along. A fire is very devastating and frightening. I've been through both. Best Wishes.

My town sent and 18 wheeler full of needed supplies yesterday. This is locals helping Texas. If there are more items collected for Texas victims we will fill another truck. Knowing my hometown there will be another truck sent. Also, churches have tables set up in front of Wal Mart to collect cash donations. I have friends and relatives living in the area. Last I heard from them all was good so far, but that was a couple of days ago.
