He said so far they have no reported fatalities in Bridge City. On the other hand a woman who works for the coast guard's mom said her daughter was out in Bridge City in her boat and bodies floated by. I think it may be a little of both. Probably no confirmed fatalities yet but potentially based on what the coast guard woman said there may be some.
It is possible that a cemetery flooded and that's what people are seeing.

Janet, I have been thinking about you and your family all night. I really hope you hear from your daughter soon. I have family in Bridge City too and I know it's so hard to wait for news.

<quoted text> Janet, My parents went to the warehouse and no one is there. There is also no evidence of a problem there other than some low flood waters. My father works in that area and knew exactly where to go. I wish you the best. According to my mothers info there are no large reports of causalities. We suspect a couple of them but they were elderly.
Dear Stephen, You cannot imagine how relieved we feel thanks to you and your wonderful family. Please thank them for us. I hope your sister's house fared well also. We don't know where she is but at least we know she isn't in the warehouse underwater as we had feared. We will continue to track her and I'll post when she finally turns up. She doesn't appear to have been rescued or gone to a shelter so she may be with friends or maybe they left on their own. We have so much more hope now. I have never done a blog before and this has been a really good experience in a very bad time thanks to people like you. I'll never forget it. And I will pay it forward. Best always, Janet Aubry

I have been reading that North Orange Baptist Church has become a center for rescues. She may have made her way there or left on her own to other locations. Children don't realize how much we worry. I am sure she is fine and I wish you the best. She is probably chasing stray animals, sound like some of my friends.

You are probably right about her chasing stray animals - that would be just like her. You made me smile. God Bless Stephen.

I was born and raised there for 18 years of life, my grandparents lost their home in this storm...we know this because my father is doing SAR in this area and he confirmed. Forgive me, but they did run out of body bags, at one point...which is why they were not allowing any one into the city, even those with Hologram badges. SAR is estimating 30-40 deaths in the Dugas edition alone--and the Dugas edition is still under water, chest deep. DPS reports 40-50% of the residents did not evacuate. Survivors are reporting that the water rose very quickly--five feet in five minutes. Most residents climbed into their attics, the surge brought reptiles from the marsh with it...and well...use your imagination. Snakes and gators are a big problem right now as well as they are apparently roaming around town, this is another reason that residents are being kept out of the city. What bothers me is that the media is not being allowed to report on the truth of the matter. They aren't allowed to fly over the affected area and they are not allowed in to the towns either. FEMA/Officials are stating that they don't want widespread panic and that's why the knowledge has been kept from the public. My personal opinion is: people have a right to know what is going on, sickening or not. I suppose that much like Katrina we shall never get an accurate death toll and if we do the numbers will be downplayed because those people CHOSE to stay and protect their homes. My sincerest apologies to those of you that have lost your homes or loved ones I will continue to pray for your peace of mind and spirit.

A short time ago I requested help in getting any information about Jane St and a family named Tackett who live there. I forgot to include a request for contact information for Coast Guard/North Orange Baptist Church or anyone connected to the rescue efforts. There have been so many helpful people in this forum. I hope you can also help me. Thank you.

Thanks for your description of the situation in what I presume is Bridge City. I am still looking for my daughter there. The Sheriff's Dept. told me as of now there are no confirmed fatalities and my friend Stephen one of the bloggers had his parents in Bridge City today looking into his sister's house and they did not see any bodies. On the other hand, the mother of the coast guard woman who was driving a boat over her house said she saw floating bodies. Another woman also heard they ran out of body bags. Where are these bodies and why does the sheriff's office say that they don't have fatalities? This information is so conflicting but if your father is doing SAR then presumably you know a lot of what is going on. When I found out my daughter wasn't trapped in the warehouse where she spent the storm I was relieved but now I'm beginning to get a much darker picture. Can you find someone I could talk to that can really give us an accurate description of where the bodies are being kept and by whom? I really need to know. Thanks again for your insight and any help you can give me. I am so sorry about your grandparents home being lost and please thank your father for all of us out here who are so appreciative of the effort he and the other rescue workers are putting forth.

My parents live on the corner of Fernwood and Wisteria in BC and there house had 5 ft. of water in it. The person that checked out the house said that it looks like all the houses in the neighborhood had about the same amount of water in them.

Stephen and everyone else who helped us look for our daughter Camilla Fitzgerald, I am more than happy and grateful to report SHE CALLED US TONIGHT AND SHE IS OK. They survived in the warehouse and then left to help friends and probably pick up stray dogs and cats. The cell phone was out of minutes but she finally got to a working phone and let us know she is walive and well. Thank you again for everyone's help and support. My prayers and gratitude are with you all.

My mom leave on Clark Street off of 408. We have heard from friends/neighbors that the water was b/t 1-2 feet in that area (so not too bad considering). We were also told that Bridge City stinks b/c of the dead fish and that when we go to check things to watch out for snakes and alligators.

I hope the information helps someone.
