Two upper level waves will interact with a warm and very moist air mass to generate thunderstorms through Saturday. Lightning and torrential rainfall that could cause flash flooding are the primary threats...with a secondary threat of damaging winds. Turn around, don't drown!
10-6-05 - Houston will hire 100 displaced Louisiana educators with a $1.9 million federal grant to tutor students who fled Hurricane Katrina.
The grant is part of $74 million that Congress gave to Texas to find jobs for hurricane victims, said Rodney Bradshaw, executive director of The WorkSource, a tax-funded regional partnership of business, education, labor and community organizations.
Tutors will work with evacuee students enrolled in Houston schools and earn up to $2,000 a month for six months, Bradshaw said.
Communities In Schools, a nonprofit school-support organization, will hire the tutors.
