  4. This is saddening.... God have a way of preserving His people. He knows we won't be able to handle such, so He won't allow it happen here.

  5. Hoping for the best for those folks impacted by this terrible storm. I read something like 50 inches of rain forecast for some parts of Texas before it's all over. 50 inches of rain in a matter of days! That is a terrifying volume of water.

    Please be safe out there.

    1. The hurricane Harvey has passed and It is a period of precipitation at random.
      You can't evacuate almost 3 million people.

      Delete
    2. People on the paths of the hurricane were evacuated.
      Some refused to leave.

      Delete
    3. A lot of them were evacuated to some shelter home.
      Some people didn't take the warning serious as well.
      But, as you can see for yourself, there are people on ground to handle emergency issues.

    1. Eka Joy, this is such an insensitive thing to say. Nigeria Army that has been loosing body parts and their lives on Boko Haram issues are the ones you say are useless abi. A prophet is not respected in his home town.

    My Takeaways
    There was adequate information on the severity of the hurricane before landfall.
    Emergency & rescue services were prompt & effective.
    Empathy-no one is poking fun at people's misery.
    Everyone recognised this as a natural disaster,no finger pointing & unnecessary brickbats.

  11. I live in Houston and for decades, it has never been so! You look out from your home and you shudder with trepidation.
    "There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Luke 21:25

    We have seen "signs in the sun and moon (I.e. the eclipse) and the roaring of the sea in just one week; wao! We have been in anguish but God had mercy; only two reported dead. Compare it to a less intense storm during the memorial day that claimed nearly forty lives. Some folks lost their homes but it can always be replaced. Both tornado, rainstorms, and hurricane pounded life and flair out of my beloved city.
    The Lord just reminded us that he is near.
    It is not over yet as forecast still depict fierce dumping of rainfall etc. In all, it was bad but not as bad as feared.

    1. Keep "chut" my friend. Katrina had a nastier impact and no one attributed it to the "second coming". Just keep "chut"πŸ˜‘

    2. @12:45
      Are you theophobic?
      Why second coming dey pain you reach like this?
      Did the anon. ask you to believe it?
      Wasn't he/she writing her experiences?
      Why can't you write yours without shutting someone down?
      Please if you are theophobic, seek help fast!
      And for your information, Texas was not on the path of Katrina,
      In fact, Texas took in almost 300k people that came in from Louisiana.
      Check your fact before venting your spleen on trivialities.

    3. Please anonymous, Katrina affected mainly the east coast and not the south coast of US. Houston is in the south coast. The person up there was talking about experiences in Houston.

  13. My heart goes out to everyone there. My joy is that it happened in a sane society where the system works. The victims will be rehabilitated in no time and life will go on.
    P.S. I thought they said all hurricanes were named after women right from time.

    1. Really sad! God help them and bless the rescuers.

      It depends on the severity of the hurricane, as in the more intense (I think they have a numbering to determine that) the tendency to name it a woman, and it is in alphabetical order too. You know the "hell has no fury... " saying.

  14. Stella this hurricane Harvey has given more headaches than we have had all our lives as a family.

    I have a cousin who lives in corpus Christi and a brother who leaves in texas.

    From Friday afternoon tI'll yesterday night before we could get across to them

    My Aunty and my mom had emaciated just for the fear of not be able to reach them.

    In corpus Christi my cousin said his house was totally submerged and he was evacuated by the emergency helicopter after sitting on the roof of his with his 2 months old twinse for almost 6 hours in the rain


    I wept when he was sharing his experience.ThankGod his in a shelter now and my brother says that the water level in his building has gotten to the top of the first floor.

    Hence those downstairs have moved up to join their neighbors.

    My brother said they had to burst open one of his neighbors doors,and old woman will disability.
    He said the water had trapped in and she cudnt call for help as the lines were jammed.

    He said she's one of the nice women who takeep care of immigrants in their building and so everybody came down to help her.

    But they are both fine and we are still praying for them.

    The pictures they sent are horrible,with their permission I may send some over to stella.

  15. Thank God for those that are alive and safe!
    Nigeria is blessed but our leaders are evil and that evil has possessed majority of the masses. I heard its been raining non stop in most parts of Nigeria, but you hardly see things like this because the soil drinks the water immediately. Imagine we didn't have such soil; Nigeria would have be like Nepal or some other countries in Asia that loss up to a 1000 people every raining season.
