Where is Trump?
Exactly where he is expected to be. On Twitter.

Sorry, my mistake. Who is he blaming this one on?
I just found a new supply of forks!

So now you are getting involved in many practical issues with getting them evacuated.

Why does he need to blame someone at this point? If that becomes needed I am sure he will have someone. Hopefully it won't.

Again (at least here in NY) during a widespread disaster, the government take control and tell you who goes where, who stays, etc. This is not only for EMS services. Even for things like backup generators, bottled water, medical supplies,  and so on. Any and all transfer agreements, employee sharing agreements, backup fuel supply contracts, and even food supply contracts all goes out the window.

Dear Supporter,

As you are no doubt aware, the community in Houston, Texas is in the crosshairs of a devastating storm that has already flooded many neighborhoods and will likely cause much more damage in the next 24-48 hours.

In the words of the president of one of the shuls in Houston: "We will need major help. This is the worst flooding in Houston history! All homes are now under water! Between inches and 6'. Shul has 4'-8' - can't even get close. And there may be another 24-48 hrs of this. We will need to have serious conversations about restarting a community. I know that sounds extreme, but this is the big one!

As a community, this is our opportunity to stand together and show our brothers and sisters in Houston that we stand with them in the spirit of Kol Yisrael Areivim Zeh Bazeh - that all of our people stand together as one.

Here are two ways you can help.

National Chizuk U'Tefilla Campaign - As Jews, we believe in the power of Tefilla (prayer), and we must also show those who are facing devastation in Houston that they have brethren from far and wide who care about them. Please use this link to commit to recite Tehillim for the Zechut (merit) of the Houston community and you can also post messages of chizuk (support) that will be passed directly on to members of the community.
Emergency Fundraising Campaign - As we work with the community to understand their specific needs, we will update our website with more information. Our full emergency fundraising campaign will launch with the next 24-48 hours. But for now - please click here to donate to the OUs disaster relief fund in support of the Jewish community in Houston.May the merit of Klal Yisrael coming together to support a community in crisis bring us all a Shana Tovah.

With Gratitude,

Moishe Bane, President
Orthodox UnionAllen Fagin, Executive Vice President
Orthodox Union

I don't know when that was taken (or if its even real) but that is clearly LGA (Marriott in the background). I see that view every day from my office  window.

What LaGuardia could look like at high tide with 25 feet of sea level rise, an amount that would require a worst-case scenario involving melting of large parts of Greenland and Antarctica.
