Looks like some place is going to get a bunch of rain dumped on them; flooding is going to be more of a concern than anything.

It sounds like conditions are right for it to potentially reach category 3 or 4.

As the resident amateur storm chaser, I'd recommend everyone in the line of fire get the fuck out of the way.

Quick folks, how do we make this racial? What are the demographics of the areas likely to be hit hardest?

It really blew up quickly; some parts of Texas are going to get pounded.

I'm sure the immediate politics of this will be centered around federal response quality and climate change. Then, long weeks of slow updates as the area becomes incrementally accessible again on the ground.

Or it could be that, like with Sandy, Republican politicians will work to prevent disaster support funds for those impacted, and we will be talking about that.

Hey WM, what's the forecast for Houston? I read that Corpus Christi was in harm's way, and that's real close to you, right?

I think my apartment was the only one in West Houston damaged by Rita. What a shithole that place was.
