Lol yeah they have to two recovery teams here the day off after four days of 14-18 hours. The worst thing now is the mosquitoes!! They are thicker than I've ever seen them...and that includes Northern Tier. Needed netting on the boats to even make moving folks possible. They spraying Monday to suppress any potential for West Nile.

Good luck with your work @Stosh.

If anyone goes wear long pants, long sleeve shirts, duct tape any gathers, get netting for your head. The mosquitoes are HORRENDOUS!!!

@Col Flag ... hope the locals are aggressive on those mosquitoes. I have family in Slidel LA and it took a long time for the Katrina inspired mosquitoes to subside. I'm not sure how aggressive they were with spraying after the hurricane (clearly other issues took priority). Great to hear your and other scouts good work. Stay safe!

Thanks for coming, any help is urgently needed. I am doing hot-shot runs out of the Red Cross headquarters and there is help needed in every direction. If your mucking area is big, contact Red Cross for cleaning supplies. Ask for the bulk distribution lead in the district you are in. Houston HQ will know the district you are in by your location. If scouts want to organize and come help, I will try to get on the forum more often and do what I can do to help from this end.

Circle Ten Council (Dallas area) is putting together another clean up trip to Houston for Scouts/Scouters.  Here's the link if interested.

 

Last Saturday, the group worked moving debris closer to the streets so the claw trucks could reach the piles.

From that link: What to bring:

Medical parts A &B, gloves, bug spray, water bottle, boots, long sleeve shirt

We will be mucking houses that were flooded so they can begin the rebuilding process.

 

Is Council providing respirator masks?

Doubt it. Our unit added those to the list to any Scout who was headed down. It's a must have.

Masks? Or respirator masks? My guys said they saw the former not the latte...at least not widely used.

I have not had any luck contacting individual units. Do you think it would be ok to send donations to Sam Houston headquarters? Our troop donated some items and gift cards that I would like to send out.

I would hope they'd accept that. Very nice of you.

Claw trucks are out already. The Texans are cleaning up really fast. If the scouts don't hurry, they will end up with very little to do. Insurance companies are all over the place and contractors are on the job. Out lying areas where the waters receded slower, could probably need the help. Last I heard, the Beaumont area is still struggling.
