Well I heard from two people today, one who was going to buy up stocks of water and another that was contemplating leaving for a few days, I personally don't think either of those actions are necessary at this point.
95% of the forecasts have the storm turning towards more to the north west then west over the next day or so towards northern Mexico.
I might go buy a new umbrella, though..
I haven't seen any signs of panic at all. Dont know where you are shopping h.e.b. is redoing there store maybe you just didn't look hard enough for the water...... Most of us aren't scared of a Little rain and those big booming sounds you are referring to is actually called thunder...Hope this helps sounds like your getting much more dramatic than those of us level headed citizens of Victoria.
It's going to rain and make big scarey booming sounds...everyone PANIC!!!!!! Geez, can't even buy water in this town anymore. Drama much Victoria?
