August 10 – Survival

When Harvey hit houston on August 25, 2017, world famous pastor Joel Osteen took flak over the weekend for closing up his church to flood victims and all but disappearing during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

But by Tuesday Osteen had recovered.  He returned to the city on his luxury yacht "S.S. Blessed" and had his yacht captain steer the large vessel through the flooded Houston streets, rescuing stranded survivors on the roofs of their houses and cars.

Osteen also took the time for brief photo ops with several families, some of whom were allowed to board S.S. Blessed.

Did Climate Change Lead to Harvey?

 

Climate Change was not the cause, but it did make Harvy worse, so say many experts.  David Roberts of DrVox.com has summed up three ways CC contributed.

First, it has raised sea levels contributing to bigger storm surges.

Secondly., it raised the temperature of the water in the region.   This has led to more evaporation and more water in the air.

Thirdly, thanks to weak prevailing winds, storms hang around longer, as did Harvey.

About three months ago  on South Padre a loggerhead sea turtle like the one in this photo  was found on the verge of dying.  Extremely emaciated and dehydrated, Leechy, as the turtle  was named, was not expected to make it overnight.  But, thanks to the staff of Sea Turtle Inc, Leechy has made a spectacular recovery.
