Thank you for this post. We are looking for our daughter who is unaccounted for in Bridge City. We keep getting conflicting reports however yours gave us hope. Someone on another blog said they are out of body bags etc. It is so hard to wait for news and not know what the real story is. Hearing from you directly as I did from another blogger via his parents who are there today gives us hope. Thank you again.

My prayers are with all of you.

We live on Wisteria Street. Our neighbor across the street went back on Sunday to check the damages to the houses, and reported that we had 4-5 ft of water in our house which they could tell by the water mark left. We had several other people go by to check our house and confirmed that report of 4-5 ft. Hope that helps!

I have not been able to get in touch with my elderly sister who lives on Granger in BC. Her husband is in a wheelchair and I'm worried sick. Can anyone tell me the conditions? If anyone is able to get by 185 Granger and you see sights of my sister would you please tell her of my concerns and prayers. Thank you!
