Residents of one Houston neighborhood took it upon themselves to perform water rescues as flooding submerged the area on Monday, April 18.
Greenspoint, in northern Houston, was one of the hardest-hit areas after nearly a foot of rain fell in less than 24 hours. Water levels rose as high as the top of cars, turning parking lots into lakes.
Though officials encouraged residents to wait for rescue officials, some thought the situation was dire enough to warrant an immediate, neighborly response.
Here we go again. Everyone's racist because I didn't get what I wanted when I wanted it! We need to stop using the word racism as it is used far more than necessary sort of like the "N" word. If the "N" word is used by a White Person it's offensive but when a Black person calls another Black person the "N" word it's a term of endearment. WTF?! We all need to start being responsible for ourselves. We rely way to much on our government which frankly can't take care of us but make sure they take care of themselves.
