Former WIBX Announcer Now in Houston Describes Hurricane Harvey
As Hurricane Harvey continues to pound Texas with another 15 inches of rain expected to fall in the next few days, former WIBX radio personality Brad Davies gave a first-hand account of the devastation from his home outside Houston. Davies told WIBX's Bill Keeler that while his home has not yet flooded, they were recently issued a voluntary evacuation order. Listen to the complete interview as Davies describes how the flood waters that have surrounded his neighborhood are only 1/4 mile away.
People just down the road have had to go up into their attics to escape the flood waters and cut holes in their roofs in order to get out. It's that bad.
"We're just sitting here waiting and hoping. I don't want to have to leave my home," he said. Meanwhile, others have not been so lucky. "People just down the road have had to go up into their attics to escape the flood waters and cut holes in their roofs in order to get out. It's that bad. It will be weeks and months for things to get back to any sort of normalcy here," he added.
The video below contains Brad's interview with Keeler, and photos of the flooding in his neighborhood. There's also a video he took driving, as he was only able to travel less than a mile from his home before being stopped by the flood waters.
