    Hurricane Irma could strike U.S. East Coast by next weekend, or it could curve out to

    Hurricane Irma could strike U.S. East Coast by next weekend, or it could curve out to sea
    Mon September 4, 2017




    Hurricane Irma has regained Category 3 intensity, and additional strengthening is likely in the coming days as it tracks west across the Atlantic. Environmental conditions could even support Irma becoming a rare Category 5 hurricane at some point, the first since 2016’s Matthew. Within the next five days, the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Haiti and the Bahamas are most definitely at risk and should prepare for hurricane conditions (at least a close encounter if not a direct landfall).
    Beyond then, forecast confidence drops dramatically. Some models curve Irma back out to sea before reaching the continental United States, but a significant percentage of models have Irma striking the U.S. East Coast as early as Saturday or Sunday. Therefore, anyone with interests from Florida to New England should monitor forecasts closely.

    The center of Irma is still about 900 miles east of the Leeward Islands, 2,150 miles east-southeast of Miami and 2,150 miles southeast of Wilmington, N.C. The National Hurricane Center is predicting Irma to pass over or near the Leeward Islands on Wednesday, then to be near the eastern Bahamas by Friday. Beyond that, the spread in model tracks grows, but it usually does at such long lead times. Hurricane watches may be issued later Sunday for the Leeward Islands.

    Puerto Ricans warned
    Irma is expected to remain a "dangerous major hurricane" through the week and could directly affect the British and US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, Turks and Caicos, and the Bahamas, the agency said.
    Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello warned the public on Sunday that the island could feel Irma's wrath around noon Wednesday.
    Puerto Rico's State Agency for the Management of Emergencies and Disaster Management (AEMEAD) is monitoring Irma and has opened an information hotline.

    Harvey aftermath: Region begins long road to recovery
    9/4/2017




    As Harvey's rainfall tapered off over the weekend in Texas, the region is starting to take stock of the damage as it enters the next phase of recovery.
    Cleanup efforts are underway after the deadly storm. But, with rivers still full and floodwaters only starting to recede, officials say it will be a long time before the full extent of the damage reveals itself.

The 13 affected sites have industrial waste from petrochemical companies, acid compounds, solvents and pesticides.

    Evacuated babies get to go home after Harvey

    Sept 5, 2017

    Babies who were dramatically airlifted out of a neonatal intensive care unit about 120 miles away in Beaumont, Texas, last week are expected to return Tuesday as the hospital now has access to clean water.

    "We're really excited. Now her grandma and everyone else can see her," said Martha Sifuentes, whose five-week-old daughter, Itzel, was one of the eight babies evacuated Friday to the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.

    Sifuentes said she and her husband, Angel Gonzalez, were grateful to the doctors and nurses at UTMB and the Baptist Hospital in Beaumont.

    "Everybody has been so great and sweet and patient with her," she said.

    The couple was separated from their daughter for a day after she was evacuated by helicopter because of flooding on the roads between Beaumont and Galveston. "It was heartbreaking," she said.

    But on Saturday the roads cleared up, and they reunited with Itzel. "It was almost like I was seeing her for the first time," Gonzalez said.

    Baptist Hospital had plenty of food and staff last week, but had to close when the city's water pump failed. The hospital still doesn't have running water, but water is being shipped in from Nederland, Texas, about 12 miles away, according to hospital spokeswoman Mary Poole. Trucks are delivering about 100,000 gallons of water a day.

    Of the eight babies who were airlifted out of Baptist Hospital -- five on helicopters and three on airplanes -- two were discharged after they arrived in Galveston. Of the remaining six infants, only Itzel's parents were able to make the trip from Beaumont, which was hard hit by Harvey.

    200 senior citizens evicted with 5 day's notice


    Sept 19, 2017


    HOUSTON (KTRK) --
    Some 200 senior citizens are in the process of packing up their belongings tonight.

    They are being kicked out of their home, and the city says there's no other choice.

    Residents living near Memorial and Sawyer near Buffalo Bayou Park received letters saying they have only five days to move out, that management is forcing to exercise their right to terminate the lease.

    "Everybody got an eviction notice," tenant Rosemary Sharp said.

    The deadline, September 23rd, was handed down with only five day's notice, says resident Edward Price.

    Many of the residents at the senior housing complex across from the bayou are veterans, now being forced to move out in a hurry.

    "I'm 98 years old. I'm a war-wounded veteran. I'm crippled," resident Albert Frances Shuttenberg said. "I got three Purple Hearts and they're throwing me out."

    Schuttenberg, like everyone else who lives here, got a notice on his door saying the property sustained significant during Hurricane Harvey and it's no longer safe for him to stay in his apartment.

    "Well that's the way it is," Schuttenberg said. "I can't find a place with this here flooding and stuff. People grabbed all the places up."

    The Houston Housing Authority owns the building. Tony Gunsolley tells me they're doing everything they can to relocate tenants in five days.

    "Originally we thought it was doable and that's what the standard practice is in what private real estate folks are doing around the city," Gunsolley said. "We're gonna evaluate it day by day. I know that if I gave people a 10-day notice, they would still say that's not enough time, and on day 9, people would still be here."

    He says he knows it's a frustrating situation, one that's unavoidable.

    Tonight at 6:30, reporter Kaitlin McCulley is talking to FEMA officials about what is being done to help residents here find new homes.
