First, an update on the Texas floods. There are still 13 people unaccounted for, and 18 people dead.

Until you see it, it's hard to imagine, which is why I appreciate photographers taking their drones out for a spin with their GoPros mounted on them. At last! A good use for drones!

In addition to the one posted above, there's this one documenting a bridge failure over the Blanco River.

It's going to take years for Texas to fully recover from this.
