    Heck no. I'm on a strictly inland towboat, we only transit the inland rivers (Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee, etc) and along the gulf ICW (think Pensacola to Brownsville). We start seeing waves greater than 3', and it isn't gonna be a good time (though it would likely take more than that to sink us. 3 inland towboat from another company got themselves in trouble just inside the coast near Corpus at landfall, in rumored 15' swells. 1-2 sank, 1-2 beached, haven't seen anything official. All crews were rescued, miraculously).

    Your statement would pertain to ships that are meant for ocean/open water transit.

    I've spent this storm tied off to numerous small trees in a bayou 12 miles inland from the coast, halfway between Galveston and Freeport. So we really haven't seen anything too major for wind, mainly up to 30, gusts to 50's.

    Man, these pictures are astounding.

    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    I'd say 4-5' higher than normal. It's worse just up the creek a little bit, it widens out a good bit where I am.

    I don't have a specific amount of rainfall for my location, but areas close to me that have had official figures noted are 20-25" thus far.

    No operations in/out of IAH until Friday at noon at the earliest. Spent about 6 or 7 hours cancelling flights today. Only 1 runway open so they are just going to have humanitarian flights operate there for the next couple days. There were still a few hundred passengers stuck in the terminal last I heard, they should all be out by the end of the day. HOU had to bring a controller in today via helicopter.

    It's a giant cluster****.

    Could be. I thought I saw it on a news site, but could have been Facebook I suppose.

    Heavy rains are back, have been for last 4-5 hours according to my Captain.

    Future radar doesn't show signs of letting up through the better part of the night atleast, too.

    I'll be honest, it's been a pretty spot on job by the meteorologists on this. You hear 50+ inches of rain and wonder if it's a bit of hype/doom and gloom, but those numbers will be hit.

    I agree that the meteorologists did a great job. tD will probably cut their funding more now.

    It is pretty hard to fathom.

    Being from the northern part of the country, I always like to think of it in terms of snow. Since, on average, one inch or rain equals about 13 inches of snow, that storm would be about 650 inches of snow, or 50+ feet.

    I assume somewhere my government has been planning to cover that eventuality.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    There is a chemical plant in Crosby, TX (NE of Houston) that is experiencing heavy flooding. They have/are evacuating the area in anticipation of a possible anhydrous ammonia explosion within the next 8 hours. The plant has lost or reduced the capacity to keep it cool.
