    Surely he wouldn't do anything so completely idiotic. Good God!! Scrap the damn wall. Get OUR people in houses and feed them. OBTW, Mexico has offered to come to Texas to assist with disaster relief. Do we want to piss off a neighbor who is offering help and who provided help with Texas last hurricane. As Obama said "Come on man"

    The current classification system may be inadequate in the era of climate change. The relationship between peak wind velocity and flooding potential is likely to be different and the susceptibility of flood-prone areas is likely to be exacerbated by water surface warming. Houston is the canary in this particular coal mine. That the hurricane made landfall some distance away did not save Houston. Improved accuracy in predicting the storm track would not have helped. And, of course, "100 year storm" has no meaning anymore.

    All this type of science information will be gone once trump and republicans implement his first budget since NOAA funding will be cut down if not totally out.

    Our classification system seems inadequate to describe what is happening in Texas. The EPA needs to be properly funded so that increased research can continue on what we can expect in our future as a result of climate change. FEMA funding should also not be cut as is currently proposed by this administration. We need a serious leader of our country that puts the citizens of this country first. Unfortunately, that isn't what we are seeing.

    My name is Linda Lawson Bruton. I live in Manteca, California. I am writing to offer food and shelter for up to 4 people. Ideally parent(s) and 2 or 3 children. Children need help the most – they need a schedule and as much normalcy as possible; school, homework, dinners, etc. However; I cannot afford the round trip flights for 4 people between Texas and Northern California. I have been in contact with American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, and United Airlines and they said they would not help. Can you answer the following? 1) A way to get 4 people from Texas to Northern California 2) How to find a family that would like to take advantage of this offer I do not need financial assistance, my husband and I just want only to help the children and their parents that scared are displaced from the flooding. Please contact me at any of the following ways: Linda Lawson Bruton Email Personal lindajobruton@outlook.com Phone Cell Linda 510-386-7257 Thank you for your help. BTW – getting through to FEMA is impossible – I tried.
