We’ve seen the destruction that the remnants of Hurricane Harvey have done to cripple Houston. The area has already been swamped by 30 inches of rain since Hurricane Harvey touched down in Texas. The National Weather Service stated that the “unprecedented” storm may flood areas around Houston with more than 50 inches of rainfall, which would be a record for Texas. “The breadth and intensity of this rainfall is beyond anything experienced before. Catastrophic flooding is now underway and expected to continue for days,” the NWS said in a statement.

The Houston Police have completed approximately 2,000 rescue missions since Hurricane Harvey began.

Latest reports find that the death toll is at eight people, which is actually remarkably low considering the catastrophic flooding that has submerged the city and the greater Houston area that has a population of over 2.2 million. The reason for the limited loss of life is because of the numerous courageous rescues that have been done by federal, state, and local employees, reporters, as well as Good Samaritans such as these brave Americans.

Based on these incredible photos and videos of heroes, it appears that the reports of America being divided are severely overblown. When a fellow American is in trouble, their fellow countrymen jump into action to save one another no matter what.
