If you're like me, regardless of where you live and what you do, your heart is in Texas this week.

So, we're pausing here to spend a few moments with Texas journalists. My colleagues and I have spent the past few days talking with local journalists covering the rising waters in Houston.

Another captured an amazing image in the middle of a disaster.

Now, we're going to go to Victoria, Texas.

There, a little more than two hours southwest of Houston, the Victoria Advocate has covered the story of Hurricane Harvey and the storms that have followed while dealing with loss of power, no water and a displaced staff.
