    DMC Houston Operation

    Anyone heard from James or any of the gang down in Houston? They are having historic flooding problems in that area as a result of Harvey. I've been following the news reports and saw some bad flooding up around the Beltway 8. Hope they are all OK.

    Yep, massive flooding. They're saying it's a 500 yr flood. Pretty much everybody in and around Houston got hit. My immediate family and I, dogs and DeLo are ok, so far. Still raining now, and we can't get out of the subdivision. Still have power. More rain expected the next two days, I think.

    I texted Shannon and got a reply just a while ago. He and family and dogs are ok too. Still have power also.

    Have not heard from the others yet.

    Thomas,

    Glad you and your family are OK. Hopefully the bulk of the rain will push East or away from Houston sooner than later. Thanks replying and checking-in. Same traffic for Shannon. Keep us posted! Prayers and thoughts going out to everyone affected down there.

    No idea on DMCH's condition, but considering Will Clayton at 59 already looks like this,

    when it should be looking like this,

    It wouldn't surprise me to see some damage.

    My neighborhood is thankfully not flood prone, but in any case if any water tries to make its way to me I'm prepared to quickly put 831 on jack stands.

    Prayers go out to all badly effected in this crazy storm.

    Flooding in TX: How are our friends @ DMC Houston doing?

    Given the terrible flooding that's taking place in south/southeast Texas - including the Houston area: Has anyone been able to reach out to DMC Houston to see how they're doing?

    James has been posting on Facebook. So far it sounds as though the DMC facility is high and dry.

    Great to hear. Every time I've been there it feels as if they are sitting in low-lying terrain, so I'm glad they've been spared.

    Sarah posted today that the facility is clear of the flooding and the employees are safe, but some of them have had water damage at their houses and nobody can get to work because the streets are still underwater.
