Texas Flood

So much rain has fallen this May on flood-ravaged Texas that it could cover the entire state with 8 inches of water, meteorologists say.

And it ain’t over yet.

Every drop of rain these days is a drop too many in most of Texas, where 22 people have died and President Barack Obama has declared a major disaster.

Showers were in the forecast for Saturday, especially in south Texas and the Houston area where up to 2 inches of rain are possible, CNN meteorologists said.

In the Houston suburb of Rosenberg, police evacuated residents from 20 homes, and those in 14 more homes were waiting Saturday until the last minute to evacuate as the Brazos River threatened to flood with more rain, Lt. William Henry said.

Obviously the government of this area did not properly inform and evacuate the citizens in the area that shows a lack of safety concern.  However some people were warned and did not heed the warnings they were given and continued as if nothing was wrong. This has to do with life because the government is trying to protect the citizens lives but they didn’t listen. It also has to do with safety for the same reason because the government was trying to keep everyone safe. A lot of U.S. citizens put their property and belongings over their own safety (a perfect example is in the video below) they do however have the liberty and the freedom of choice to do so.
