13 million people from Corpus Christi to New Orleans have been affected by “Catastrophic and life-threatening flooding” due to the effects of Hurricane Harvey.

One of the more unusual aspects of the storm was that it intensified as it approached Texas; typically hurricanes decrease in strength as they approach landfall. By the time Harvey landed in Texas, it was a massive Category 4 storm, up from the original measurement of Category 2. 

After being informed of the area affected by Harvey, Donald Трамп asked, “Is Corpus Christi one of Chris Christie’s cousins? Like on old TV shows, when there’d be a cousin from another town, and they were played by one of the actors on the show but the cousin would wear a moustache? Boy, that was some storm, wasn’t it?”

Another new monument called, “We wear white hoods and robes so no one can tell exactly who’s in the KKK,” is expected to go up on next year.
