Strange Decisions when Stressed


People make strange decisions when they are stressed.

What is the “Strangest Decision” you have ever made when you were stressed?

Here’s a few of those decisions, They really happened the weekend of the Hurricane:

  • One man was tying himself to a telephone pole to weather the storm.
  • Another was kite surfing in the huge waves.
  • Another man, donned what appears to be a snorkeling mask, said that “he’s going ride out Hurricane Irma in a store front on Duval Street and won’t evacuate.

Hurricane Harvey’s Real Story Begins: 40 Inches of Rain to Bring Catastrophic Flooding to Southeast Texas

Aug 26, 2017, 5:00 AM KPRC

Hurricane Harvey may be weakening as it slows down over Texas, but the concern for catastrophic flooding will persist into next week.

Harvey made landfall Friday night near Rockport, Texas, a town of less than 10,000 people and about 30 miles up the Texas coast from Corpus Christi, after rapidly intensifying in the Gulf of Mexico.

Harvey is the nation’s first major (Category 3 or stronger) hurricane landfall in almost 12 years. A multi-day deluge of the Texas Gulf Coast with catastrophic and life-threatening flooding and destructive winds through could leave areas uninhabitable for an extended period of time, the National Weather Service has warned.

Meteorologist say, ‘The “rapidly intensifying” storm, now forecast to become a Category 3 storm before it makes landfall on the Texas coast.”

Fox News’ Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean said Thursday. “Texas hasn’t had a hurricane make landfall since 2008, and the fact that this storm is expected to slow down and potentially bring epic floods to the coast from Louisiana to Texas is just dire.”
