Please Help Texas

“Dos Cuchillos” who is a member of the Calaveras Motorcycle Club and Chairman of Region 8, the Corpus Christi Region, of the Texas Confederation of Clubs and Independents announced this afternoon that American Legion Post 364 in Corpus Christi will be “a staging point for collection and distribution of relief supplies throughout the Coastal Bend region.”

The Legion Post is at 5323 Kostoryz Road in Corpus Christi.

“We will be working in conjunction with the American Red Cross to ensure those affected by Hurricane Harvey are receiving critically needed supplies,” he said. “We will open the doors of the American Legion at 6 p.m. today to take all offers of assistance of any type. GOD BLESS TEXAS!”

    I want to Thank the Cajun Navy, You folks are awesome. Many people would have lost their lives had it not been for your quick mobilization into the flooded areas. An amazing effort by a well coordinated organization. Good Job!

    It’s a mess here in southeast Texas. We are cut off from the rest of the area where I live as all roads leading out of town are still flooded. Bayous are over their banks by 20 feet in some areas and the dam is releasing water now to keep from overflowing Lake Sam Rayburn or possibly collapsing the dam. The town is running out of everything. No gas, many stores closed or just out of everything. It’s bad but everyone is trying to help each other out. We finally got power back so I could turn off the generator. We’ll get through this, we always do.

    Not to take away from anything the bikers have have done or are doing for the flood effort, but the national guard and the army has put on an amazing show where I live.

    Where I work I can see Hwy 59 and the San Jacinto river out of my window. Yesterday the river was almost 2 miles wide, Usually I can throw a rock about halfway across it.

    The coast guard, Cajun navy, state police, H.P.D., national guard, and the citizens in this area have done and continue to do an above and beyond, amazing job.

    ^ this video shows the San jac river at 59, and flooding in the kingwood texas area. We were hit especially hard, lake houston,lake kingwood, and the San jac river have merged to form a single body of water.

    30 counties, 7 million people, versus a 1000 year flood. We could have never prepared but the way we have all banded together to help each other is something I doubt would happen in many other places.

    Tyler, TX. and Waco, TX. Are the armpits of Texas. The frozen chosen.

    Good publicity for a state that seems to have a large disdain for its motorcycle culture. Texan by birth, FREE because I left.

    Too bad Waco isn’t a suburb of Houston.

    Thanks. We High and Dry in DFW but what a mess down south. I was with the Texas boat people in New Orleans during Katrina. CRAZY! Too old and broke up for Harvey. I have no doubt most Bikers have secured their bikes and are saving people with their boats right now. Texas is a great State except for Waco. (Like a nasty pimple on a otherwise fine Chicks ass.) What a shame Harvey missed Waco. On another note the Politicians are already fighting about the $. Seems Texas Lawmakers didn’t vote for Sandy $. Karma’s a bitch and Waco is far overdue. Shame that Fertilizer Plant wasn’t next to the Courthouse.
    Make no mistake about this…$ or no $… Texas got this.

    “We’re saved Paw! Who is it, the National Guard?”. “Naw Maw, ain’t them Army boys, looks like a bunch of them outlaw biker types!”. “Well that ain’t surprising, bikers are always the first to help and the last to get credit for it.” “Sure enough Maw, sure enough.”. God bless all who help the people beat up by Harvey. You know there are going to be all sorts of relief efforts put on by bikers across the country, let’s show Texas (and especially certain POSs in Waco) the good saddle tramps can do.

    Bet you won’t find this article in the Lame Stream Press. Thoughts and prayers to the victims of this catastrophic flood.

    I hope that everyone no matter what patch is on your back that you, your family, brothers and neighbors are somewhere safe and out of harms way. For those who can donate, every little bit helps and if you cant donate cash, donate some time to help out

    Henry sure did a number in Texas, lord knows this wont be the last storm to wreak carnage
