Each day seems to bring deeper understanding of just how impacting this event is. It seems like such a domino effect. Buildings are damaged, so people can't work until they are repaired and more than likely those same people have issues with where they live and/or the cars they drive.
When they kept saying 13+ inches of rain, I had to convert it to snow to get a better understanding of how much that is (must be my upbringing). Had this been snow, they would have gotten 130 inches or 10+ feet!
The fact that insurance doesn't cover this is another devastating thought.
I know these people need grace, comfort, strength, and wisdom from the Lord. He wasn't caught off guard like we were. So whenever you hear about it, please take a moment to pray.
Here's a video I found on another blog of some of the destruction. We've been to many of these places, so it is so weird to see them filled with so much water.
