Recently I accompanied a friend when she was picking her daughter up from school. Working with visitor management since 2002, I was very excited to see what the school was doing for visitor management. I knew that with a little investment, the school could know who was coming, who was allowed to pick up students, and screen against unwanted visitors, including known sex offenders.

Hurricane Harvey formed on August 17th, 2017, and dissipated on September 3, 2017. On August 25th, Harvey made landfall in Texas. Harvey devastated the area from Houston into Louisiana. In a four-day period, many areas received more than 40 inches (100 cm) of rain as the system stalled over eastern Texas, causing catastrophic flooding. The resulting floods inundated hundreds of thousands of homes, displaced more than 30,000 people, and prompted more than 17,000 rescues.
