Houston Met Its Katrina!

America's fourth largest city is coping with massive flooding from destructive hurricane.

There were devastating floods in the state of Texas from the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. On Friday night, the hurricane hit the Texas Gulf Coast and struck areas around a 500 mile radius.

Three major areas in Texas are under severe flooding. The hurricane currently is downgraded to tropical storm status and it's pouring down rain at such a rapid pace. It already spilled over 15 million cubic feet of water has already surpassed the amounts recorded so far.

The hurricane will effect Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi and Oklahoma before it downgrades.

The second largest state in the United States has three of the nation's largest cities.

Houston is the largest city in Texas. It's also the fourth largest city in the United States. The current population of the city is 3.3 million residents. The city has 668 square miles. It extends into three counties. Houston is the county seat of Harris County. Segments of the city go into Fort Bend and Montgomery Counties.

Other cities impacted by the hurricane include Port Arthur, Galveston, Corpus Christi, Victoria,
Watching updates on Hurricane Harvey. 
Many in the junk food media are criticizing Republicans lawmakers for their utter hypocrisy. When they get back to Washington, many lawmakers will pass a budget that will include funding for damage relief.

It's going to be a hard pill to swallow. The very same Republicans who often vote against the safety net are now forced to make a decision on whether they'll support their constituents.

Donald J. Trump had kept in contact with Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas and Gov. John Bel Edwards of Louisiana during the event.

However, the federal government hasn't really offered real good assistance when it comes to hurricane relief. Back in 2012, many Republicans from the state of Texas refused to support funding the damage relief after the Hurricane Sandy disaster.
