I forgot that I have a 2 waterbobs! I'm filling them now and have added them to my HurCon 3 checklist.

I have a single bathroom with tub/shower, so a waterbob limits any drain option... a 33 gal plastic trash can allows me to have non potable water for shower and flushing toilet and still allows access to a shower drain... in 2004/2005 we did not lose city water pressure, but a black painted dedicated use garden sprayer works for a shower water pressure if needed...

keep safe

Wow, this is turning into a bad one. The rainfall forecast is just insane. Be safe, everyone.

Of course something like that would be mentioned on the web site of a Dallas station.

I just received pics of 1 towboat sunk up to the top of its pilothouse and 1 towboat that is now high and dry on land. Both boats were owned by the same company and there is a third towboat that was also sunk. That has lost 3 towboats in one day.

The weather channel is also showing a fairly new z-drive tugboat sunk in Corpus Christi ship channel. That tug is owned by a Pascagoula, Ms company, I think...

The 3 towboats were all denied permission to seek shelter in CC Hbr.

Sorry but I can't load the pics on here.

Perhaps TPTB feared that the vessels could not be securely anchored or moored and would therefore be a danger to other craft and persons therein.

Or perhaps the harbour was already so full that any extra craft no matter how carefully moored, would damage other vessels by collision.

Sure enough ... tons of rain getting dumped on Texas, esp. near the coast.

It's hard to understand the early reports about Hurricane Harvey. Why did the news say it had increased in strength to a Cat 4 hurricane? Then almost immediately afterwards it was downgraded to Cat 1? But the predictions about major flooding are definitely coming true. And this inundation event is still just getting started. The police, Coast Guard and first responders sound like they are all doing a TERRIFIC job in Texas. Congratulations to everyone.

It's hard to understand why more people didn't evacuate from places like Houston. And also hard to understand why people are trying to drive through heavily-flooded roads. The flooding damage in cities like Houston is going to cost enormous money for the insurance companies. But at least the number of lives lost is small.

Those are good hypotheticals, but specifically, in this instance, what was their rationale?

Denying safe haven is kind of unusual, especially for mariners...
