In light of Friday's incoming Hurricane, residents tried reducing the heaviness of Harvey through social media.

One narrative in particular can be found on Facebook from District Attorney Stephen Tyler after he boarded his home in preparation for the weather.

"I sat down for some cold water and doorbell rang," Tyler wrote. "I went out, nobody was there. This went on several times."

He continues in this vein.

"I began to loose (sic) my patience and became rather profane as I wondered who was jacking with me," Tyler wrote. "I then realized I had boarded over the doorbell and it was randomly ringing. Dang."

Other residents took to Twitter to express their hurricane concerns.

Celebrity musicians expressed thoughts and prayers for residents.

Alyssa Adames, University of Houston-Victoria student, tweeted at Memphis May Fire's vocalist Matty Mullins: "@MattyMullins in need of prayers for us as we take on this hurricane here in Victoria, Tx. It's going to be hitting us straight on."

Mullins replied: "praying!!!!"

Twitter also offered residents a few laughs before the storm.

Justin Vela tweeted: "All I'm worried about right now is not having any wifi"

Gabbie Luna tweeted: "In the midst of all this hurricane madness, I totally forgot that today is pay day."

Steven Brandt, senior at Victoria West High School tweeted: "I've already ate all my hurricane snacks and the hurricane hasn't even hit yet #Harvey"
