‘Loving’ the ‘Losing’ side of life: What we’re all going through in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey

A storm surge in Houston caused widespread flooding, destruction and the death of at least 50 people, and the Houston Police Department is bracing for another wave of violence, this time in the wake of a massive manhunt.

Here are the stories behind the headlines and the stories that happened.


Harvey’s aftermath Harvey’s first landfall came just days after the massive wildfires that swept through the West, killing more than 1,000 people and setting the stage for a devastating and costly humanitarian crisis.

The fires began in Texas and spread to parts of California and Louisiana, and a few days later they reached the Houston area.

But in the days that followed, there were signs that the fire season was in full swing, with a spike in fires in the state’s cities and towns.

By the end of the year, Harvey was already making landfall in Texas, bringing heavy rains to Houston, a region already under siege from extreme weather conditions.

In October, more than 3 million people were forced to flee their homes in Houston and surrounding areas, according to the Houston Chronicle.


The rise in wildfires Harvey was the first hurricane to hit Texas in nearly 70 years.

The National Hurricane Center reported at the time that “flames in Texas continue to increase in intensity, and more of the region’s most active fires are still burning.

A storm system that was forecast to develop on Oct. 31, as well as the possibility of a hurricane warning for parts of Texas, are leading to an increase in the number of wildfires.”

The National Weather Service forecast that “this weekend will be the most active wildfire season in Houston since 2005, and this week is expected to be even more so.”


The death toll Hurricane Harvey left a huge footprint on the lives of people across the state.

As the storm made landfall in Houston, thousands of people fled their homes, many of them to the local airport.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, more people were killed in the storm as of Oct. 6 than during any other month in the last decade.

Nearly two dozen people died in the Houston-Galveston area alone, including the Houston fire chief.

Four people died after their vehicle was swept away in a flood in Brazoria County.

A man in his 70s died from the storm in Harris County.

The floodwaters damaged hundreds of homes, destroyed a nursing home and left a disabled woman dead in a home in the Austin area.

In some places, like New Braunfels, people have been unable to leave their homes for weeks, according the Houston Fire Department.


The city’s water supply “If you have an outdoor garden, you can’t use your garden for the rest of the winter.

It will be in shambles.

The water will be bad,” said Kevin Hutton, the city’s chief water manager.

Hutton said the city was getting ready to start pumping water out of the city on Monday, but the city has not yet completed its water delivery plan.

Floodwaters also flooded a number of neighborhoods in the city.

“We have a number that are going to be underwater.

I think we’re going to have to build a bridge,” Hutton told the Houston Tribune.

“I think the city is going to take that opportunity to begin to restore to some degree.”


How a fire started The Texas Department for Health and Human Services estimated the number dead in the storms death toll to be between 1,100 and 1,400.

According a Texas Commission on Environmental Quality report, the number who died from natural causes was between 2,200 and 2,600, but that figure includes people who were injured and killed by the storms fire.

Many residents, including Harvey’s victims, were trapped in their homes.

According the Texas Commission for Environmental Quality, nearly 50 percent of the residents who died in Texas from fires were not the first victims of the storms fires.

The report said the total number of people who died was approximately 2,800, including 2,400 who were homeless.

“The number of deaths that we have documented is the highest number of fatalities in Texas in the recent history of this region,” the report said.


A state of emergency The Houston Fire and Rescue Department, which is responsible for firefighting in Houston’s most densely populated neighborhoods, is braced for more fire.

“In the city of Houston we have a total of about 4,400 firefighters on the streets, and they are not going to stay on the street for long,” Houston Fire Chief Michael Brown told the Tribune.

Brown added that the department has already deployed more than 10,000 firefighters.

Brown said he believes the firefighting effort will take several weeks, and that the state will have to find $300 million to help rebuild homes.


The cost of the Harvey disaster There are estimated to be at least $300 billion in damage, according a FEMA report.
