Unprecedented Disaster




This is a time to put the camera down and not discuss photography. As most of you know I live in Texas and we are likely seeing the largest natural disaster in American history with Hurricane Harvey as it has hit the gulf coast. This is a serious video and your help is needed.

  1. Happy to hear that you did get no harm from the storm system. Living in northeast Germany I personally wont see a hurricane until I visit your area, but in the last year we had some Tornados, weird to see them. I will donate.

  2. Thank you for doing this video. As a stage IV cancer survivor I get treatment at MD Anderson and Houston is my second home. I pray for the people and the city. I hope we can come together to support the city in the way you suggested. I'm amazed at the devastation. Please help if you can.

  3. Dear Ted, I am impressed that you use your channel to reach out for aid to all those involved in the Houston area. Your heart is in the right place. Thanks for sharing your feelings. For me, it improves the quality of what you say about photography topics. Best regards, Frans Buijteweg

  4. Oh !!!!! It is so great to hear from you, Ted !!!! I was too afraid to even ask……… The moment I learned that the massive storm has hit Texas, I thought about you…….. I was terrified and praying for your safety all the time….. It is indeed a great relief to hear from you !
    I hope that the ordeal for the people of the affected area will be over soon.

  5. I am from Houston, luckly i didnt get flooded, but was trapped in my neighborhood for 3 days. Some of my family got some water in their home. My bestfriend with his wife and 3 kids lost everything. Water came up chest deep inside their home. They got out safe after a few hours. Thank God they are ok. Everything can be replace. People are still having to be evaluated. As now the swollen rivers and bayous are releasing water down its banks to release into the Gulf. So many who didnt flood during the storm are now getting flooded from the water rushing down the bayous. Houston(Harris County) is a huge city with 6.5 million people. But i am proud of my City, our own community have come together to help each other. It will take months to get back together, but as a Houstonian… #wegotthis

    Thanks to all the first responders, cillvians, and everyone out side of Houston for helping us.

  6. Thank you for this. I lived in S Fla for 36 years, through several hurricanes, including Andrew, and have family in Crowley, LA, so I am touched by your kindness and by the overwhelming situation in Houston and surrounding areas. Shared your video on our Tumblr photography reblog site (where we often share your videos). My thoughts are with all those folks during this challenging time.

  7. Glad you're safe, Ted! Praying for the great state of Texas! I have many friends who live in Dallas, Austin, and Houston. Though this whole situation is heartbreaking, it reminds me to be glad that we live in a country where many people are still willing to stand together in times of need like this.

  8. What's really tragic is that the majority of people do not have flood insurance, and those that do will probably get screwed over by the insurance companies. This is where our Federal government is needed to step in and take care of this situation. Keep all of those billions that are being wasted overseas and take care of our own.

  9. When things like this happen, we need to turn to the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the comforter and can help with the loss and sadness. My prayers are with the people of Texas and you too Ted. I hope you know Jesus as well. Blessings to you all.

  10. Thank you!! This was such a powerful thing to do, sir. It is so easy to watch news the news and feel badly but very disconnected from what is going on down there. You put a personal face on it for everyone once again and we have to keep doing that as a country so we continue to rally to help all of these devastated people who have lost everything…because the clean up will be going long after this is out of the news cycle. I have always thought so, but today you proved once again what a class act you are! Kudos!! ❤️

  11. Texas is my sales territory and I will be headed back to Houston next Tuesday. Many of my customer's businesses have been destroyed. The ones that remain have customers who have lost everything. There is not much I can do as I roll through, but I will be taking pictures and delivering bottled water.
