AFK: Hurricane Harvey

The day before the tropical depression in the Gulf of Mexico became Hurricane Harvey, the Texas State Guard stood up its emergency operation center. I reported to the TEOC on August 23. We ran 24  hours a day in 12-hour shifts through the 13th of September.  On the 13th, with the flooding largely in recession, the State Operation Center scaled down, and we followed. We now have three 8-hour shifts, with reduced staffing. Texas still has about 6000 people in community shelters.
