Residents of Houston, Texas and the surrounding cities are facing an apocalyptic scenario today. With Hurricane Harvey poised to dump over 30 inches of rain in some parts of the already flood-prone area, residents are filling grocery stores looking to buy food and water before the floods hit.
The problem is, once a disaster is so close, it’s already too late to get yourself properly prepared. At empty grocery stores shoppers will be forced to settle on whatever is available. A little forethought could have set them up with a supply of food, water, medicines and other supplies to get them through the storm.
Take a look at the video below. Harvey is still off the coast and store shelves are already bare.
