On Thursday blasts rocked the facility, about 25 miles east of Houston and zoned off inside a 1.5-mile (2.4-km) exclusion zone, after it was engulfed by floodwater. With the presence of water-borne contaminants a growing concern, the National Weather Service issued flood watches from Arkansas into Ohio on Friday as the remnants of the storm made their way through the U.S. heartland. The Neches River, which flows into Beaumont and nearby Port Arthur, was forecast for a record crest from Friday well above flood levels. The flooding and loss of drinking water forced the evacuation of a hospital on Thursday. “Beaumont is basically an island,” Mayor Becky Adams told a news conference on Thursday. The city, situated about 80 miles (130 kms) east of Houston and largely cut off by floods, was only able to receive one major supply of drinking water on Thursday and there were plans to set up water distribution centers on Friday, city official said. Harvey roared ashore late last Friday as the most powerful hurricane to hit Texas in half a century. It was downgraded to a tropical depression as it headed inland, dumping unprecedented quantities of rain and leaving devastation across more than 300 miles in the southeast corner of the state.
“It’s a recreational activity where people can do something they enjoy.” The funds raised through the tournament will benefit the SPCA’s subsidiary spay and neuter program, which helps pet owners who are dealing with severe circumstances. “For our hardship cases, we ask you to fill out an application for assistance,” Harris said. “Basically, we ask you to write a paragraph about what’s going on.” Depending on the case, the SPCA ชุดเครื่องนอน พร้อมส่ง could decide to step in and help a family who wants a spay or neuter service for their dog or cat, but can’t necessarily afford it. “Say your husband lost his job and you’re living on $800 a month, but you have three dogs that you’d like to have spayed,” Harris said. “It’s for people who are greatly in need.” While the fundraiser will help the SPCA serve more animals in the Martinsville-Henry County community, the shelter – and local donors – certainly haven’t forgotten about the people who will make the continuation of the subsidized spay and neuter program possible on Thursday. As in years past, Autos by Nelson will sponsor a variety of holes on the 18-hole course. If golfers make a hole-in-one on a certain portion of the course, they could win a prize. This year, the car dealership will offer $15,000 toward the purchase of a new Chevrolet, a TravisMathew head to toe signature outfit and $500 online shopping spree, a four day and three night getaway at the French Lick Resort and $2,000 worth of complimentary golf from www.teeoff.com . “It’s pretty expensive,” Harris said. “There are several big prizes.” In addition to the prize opportunities available at select holes, there are also prizes for the tournament winners. “Helping animals should be prize enough, but we’ve got medals for our winners,” Harris said.
