Houston is going to have a massive mosquito problem.
After Hurricane Katrina, many evacuees were relocated to Houston and ended up as residents, where they just had to endure Hurricane Harvey. They must feel snake bit having to go through two of the most damaging hurricanes in U.S. history. It would be really crazy if someone was old enough to survive the 1900 Galveston hurricane, Katrina, and Harvey.
The dead bodies were so numerous that burying all of them was impossible. The dead were initially weighted down on barges and dumped at sea, but when the gulf currents washed many of the bodies back onto the beach, a new solution was needed. Funeral pyres were set up on the beaches, or wherever dead bodies were found, and burned day and night for several weeks after the storm. The authorities passed out free whiskey to sustain the distraught men conscripted for the gruesome work of collecting and burning the dead. More people were killed in this single storm than the total of those killed in all the tropical cyclones that have struck the United States since.
I’m not trying to cast any judgment, but I’m curious how different things would be if President Trump owned a downtown Houston building or golf course.
