Storm leaves Texas, rips Louisiana, Valley flooded, but escaped the worst

While the Rio Grande Valley communities survey the damages that the remnants Hurricane Patricia left, the storm has moved out of Texas and into Louisiana, where it has caused even worse damage than in much of the Lone Star State.
There, it wass flooding parts of Louisiana and surrounding states early Monday.
Harlingen escaped much of the Valley flooding, but La Feria, Weslaco, Santa Rosa all and Raymondville reported more serious flooding.
Saturday’s rainfall set a raecord for the day at the Vallley International Airport, at 2.76 inches, breaking a 64 record for the day of 1.75 inches.

    I wonder why sandbags weren’t made available in Cameron county.

      Cameron county and the city of Harlingen, refused to hand out sandbags. So when jury duty comes, I will refuse too. If they can’t help out taxpayers, then we should not help them.

      I still suggest that you think about a lawsuit. With all the dealings you have had and proof of their arrogance in dismissing factual evidence. There is even grounds for a class action lawsuit.

      If they done it to you,you know they have done it to others and for how many years? I bet these people can get you a lawyer who will actually fight for justice.
