Brazoria County TX residents told to evacuate immediately

Experts are warning of more severe damage as the impact of flood waters from Hurricane Harvey is causing infrastructure to collapse. According to the Houston Press, residents of Brazoria County, south of Houston, have been told to evacuate immediately due to a breach in the Columbia Lakes levee.

The photo above shows the area around the Brazos River flooded as the river reached a new record of 59 feet.

This comes after the Brazos River rose to historic levels on Monday, a development that made it highly unlikely the levee would hold for the duration of the Harvey flooding. The area endangered is West Columbia, a town of about 4,000 people located about 60 miles outside of Houston alongside the Columbia Lakes, a levee system built to hold back the Brazos River, a part of the section outside of Houston that has seen some of the most intense destruction in the wake of Harvey.

“The Brazos River is being pounded, and all of that water is coming down from the tributaries and creeks into the river,” a Brazoria County official told CNN. “All the roads around us are flooded. We don’t have any evacuation routes to tell people to take.”

CNN reports more details in this 11-minute video.

Bless you James for being up for us here on Z3 !
The fact that there is 19 trillion tons of water on Houston and more to come
makes me think our US debt has been called in —and not just a financial debt !
Just listened to Trunews Aug 29th–They mentioned Z3’s post of Pamela
Banda and Saldivar’s ? on spelling . I had emailed them about Houston and
prophetic words given—maybe I wasn’t the only one .
Rick Wiles and staff were amazed that you , James, had posted this word
of Pamela’s on Aug. 29th 2016, because He , Rick was waiting for conformation
on thought of judgement on Houston and received it on Aug 29th from Zach!
Praying and will pray at 12pm CT !!!! Good call of the spirit Expatgal !

Incredibly upsetting for anyone with loved ones &/or friends in Texas to wonder why the Mayor of Houston did NOT tell people to evacuate while the governor suggested evacuation might be prudent. Truly hope this was not due to their differences in political parties. Death toll is at 12 people and continues to increase….. 😢 http://www.christianpost.com

If anyone in the Z3 Community is interested in joining in a virtual group prayer for the people impacted by the floods, I plan to do this each day at 1 PM ET, 12 PM CT, 11 AM MT, 10 AM PT for a week. 🙏🏻🙏🏻

Prophet Selvaraj said that what is needed is not revival but for people to get their house in order. Christians need to remove sin out of their own ‘house’ first before they can be of aid to others. We were reading in Leviticus this morning. The priests must first offer sacrifice for their own sins and consecrate themselves, before they can offer sacrifice for others.

Am already seeing a backlash against “prophetic” reporting. Facebook informed me yesterday that they were removing an article I shared about The eclipse, Hurricane Harvey, and judgement. They said it violated their policy of “community standard”. We had some back and forth. Today they relented and left the article on Facebook. I’ve followed Z3 for a couple of years or so, and have shared many prophetic posts from here on Facebook. It’s one thing to post something about a possible future event—but when things actually begin to happen, it’s different. As many folks are affected—losing homes , loved ones, everything they own—there will naturally be backlash. And this is only the beginning. What about the prophecies about Chicago, New York, San Francisco, all of California? It’s probably safe to project the media will not be friendly. Lynn Leahz , I believe, had her Pay Pal account dropped or something. I suppose as millions are dying and suffering, this evil world will probably not want to hear any more dire predictions. That’s why Jeremiah was arrested, thrown into a cistern, and later into prison. But he never stopped speaking what GOD told him to stay. One of our heroes.

If you look at the last frame on the European model, you can see another storm/low in the Yucatan developing, and taking a pretty similar path as Harvey, by next Tuesday.

Also, if you look on the right side, during the last frame you can see another storm entering the Caribbean heading for the Gulf.

I do believe a second storm could easily hit Texas, especially Houston, quite possibly put the nails in the coffin, and fulfilling the prophetic words given by those who saw Houston and surrounding areas get destroyed by floods.

James Bailey: Consider this. We must pray for protection from another disaster, as our emergency services are focused on Texas, and those services would be severely strained.

Wanted to share something that has been bugging me. When I first heard about hurricane Irma I heard the Holy Spirit speak read it backwards AMRI it’s both masculine and feminine name. It’s a very old name use in Muslim and African cultures.
The other thing I am sensing is that it’s NOT going to hit Florida but New York city leaving millions of people unprepared. Feels like a trick. Originally New York city was the predicted target. Wondering how others feel. Thanks
