*is so fucking tired*

So my parents' street flooded. They left before it reached their house, so no idea about the house. Them and my aunt are at my apt now; had to leave my aunt's two dogs behind, so that's heartbreaking. There wasn't enough room in the cars. They're in the yard, and they're labs, so... *hopes*

Lilsis in her third floor apt with husband and our cousin, trapped by water at apt complex entrance; bigsis + husband + 2 cats + 2 dogs on the way out of town and no way to access them 'til they get back near wifi. Other assorted cousins, aunts, and uncles trapped but safe at the mo.

I have no idea what to do.

ETA: bigsis has made it to her destination! lilsis has checked on parents' place and there's water in the driveway, and our aunt's dogs have stayed put.

Praying for you and your family.

I was through that area just a couple of years ago, on my way to visit great-aunts and uncles in Natchitoches Parish; can't even imagine. Though I do vaguely remember the aftermath of the 1983 hurricane in Houston, where I lived as a kid; the weather gods do indeed go crazy sometimes. Will keep you and yours in my thoughts.

It's like... there was zero warning. It's Louisiana, so it rains in the summer. It was a hurricane without the weeks to prepare, and without the wind, and without the name.

Places have flooded that never have before. Not in 1983, not in 1927, not since people started recording this shit.

And it's supposed to keep raining all this week.

Oh wow. It's so good that you're there to take in your family. Labs are pretty smart, they are probably going to be okay. Glad your bigsis got where they were going safely. Hope the weather calms down now and the flooding starts subsiding soon.

The dogs are okay! Me and mom bought kennels for them today, because my aunt and her dogs are staying with mom until... who fucking knows. They tried to get to her house today but couldn't because that area is still full of water.

Prayers. Is there any way the dogs can be taken in now?

If water had actually gotten into the house or yard, lilsis was going to bring the dogs to her apt, but thankfully, that never happened.

How are they food-wise?

Fine. We bought more dog food yesterday when we got kennels for them. If you mean my mom's house, that's also fine, food-wise.

I meant the dogs left in the yard, but I'm glad to hear that, too.
