Amen. Instead of riding it out, ride North, East or West.

Re: Hou-Dats, stay safe!!!

I'm on duty all weekend, for local media, at Houston TranStar, an intergovernmental agency, which is functioning as the city's emergency operations center. Looks like we'll be holed up here all weekend. Most people here know this facility as the "Freeway Cams" place.

I would advise people to leave. If we get projected rainfall, and there is any storm surge up Buffalo Bayou, we'll have catastrophic floods, and the water will have nowhere to go. I did aerial video of Tropical Storm Allison (some of my footage you can see, on Weather Channel, etc, )... Allison shutdown Houston's freeways for 3 days, and caused millions in damage and nearly 30 deaths, most of them, I feel, avoidable.

If this storm does what is projected, the freeways will be impassible, and we will get floods in places that have not flooded before. There have been numerous infrastructural changes, and an explosion of construction, all sure to affect the drainage system, and again, no drainage system can overcome storm surge.

I think we'll have mass power outages, and also I believe the strength of the winds of this storm will surprise a public, which heard, correctly, that the storm had broken up over the Yucatan. It reorganized quickly, and begin moving very slowly over the Gulf, which you fellow Gulf Coasters know add strength to the Storm. There has been little effort to evacuate. Local leaders are gun shy about a repeat of the Run Away Panic, which was the evacuation ahead of Hurricane Rita, in which people were killed evacuating.
They really didnt have time to mull an evacuation, as this storm just organized, after the Yucatan, instantly.

If I werent here getting my Jim Cantore on, as my job requires, I would be off into the Wild Blue Yonder, and not staying here.
