**** Update Wednesday 10am.
We tried all night to get to the Cajun Navy on Monday night with no success, the flooding has all ways into Houston shut down. We dropped the supplies off at a local church in Conroe, Ben and Kenny stayed down with the boat to help. I'm back in DFW for alittle work, reload and head down to support. We will keep updates coming.
Returned with another load load of canned foods, diapers, bottled water, toiletries, blankets, towels, gas and some other stuff I'm forgetting. SuperSave in Justin donated 15 cases of water , cases of cereal and some other items. The 1 ton box van was so loaded it would bottom out on bumps.... the second load we dropped off at Beaumont, we gave water to people that had none for a couple days while stopping to see if the flood waters were passable. The box van threw a belt and seized the belt tensioner from the high water, luckily I was a hundred yards from an Autozone and and a mechanic shop. We were fixed in about 45 minutes. Crazy to see several families tossing 5 gallon buckets into ditches to get water.
Let's help our fellow Texans in need. They are calling this a thousand year storm and the devastation will be historic, donate now to help us get supplies, food, water and whatever else's we can to help. We have a pickup truck, box van and boat we are taking. Roadrunner Charters has graciously donated water and has 20 motorcoaches staged and ready for rescue shuttles. The flooding won't peak until Thursday.
We are contacting the local authorities and will leave later this afternoon or early tomorrow morning. We will post updates as they come. Thanks!
We raised about $2,700 including the cash donations! Delivered over 3 pallets of water, food, blankets and many other essential items. Ben and Kenny rescued dozens of people over the 4 days they were down there. I returned back, resupplied and made a second full load. We placed the purchases on a CC and will pay the CC when we receive funds from gofundme.
