Water Break - Part II

I've posted a science fiction writing challenge over at the Parallels blog today. If you'd like to participate, go here.

Thank you to everyone who has been praying for our community, sending warm wishes, and even donating. I took this picture of the street behind mine today:


My house is about 3 - 6 feet higher, so I think we'll be fine. Officials are expecting the water to crest tonight. However, not far from here:




Interstate Highway 10 between Texas and Louisiana has been closed down due to the flooding:



Officials are still struggling to make sure everyone is out of the danger zones, and the rains will be returning today:



If you'd like to learn more, the flooding is taking place in the Orange and Newton counties of Texas. Southwest Louisiana is having just as many problems if not more. You can search Starks and Vinton Louisiana to learn more there.

Continued prayers and donations are greatly appreciated!
