Heat-Scorched Odessa, Texas Has Been Without Water All Week Due To “Ageing Infrastructure”, by Tyler Durden

Millions for Odessa, Ukraine, a pittance for Odessa, Texas. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

Amid scorching temperatures which have hovered above 100 degrees all week, one Texas city has had its water supply shut off for multiple days running. What started as a possibly 48-hour local crisis for Odessa, a West Texas town long known for oil production, has gained national media attention at a time of severe record-breaking heat waves in various parts of the US. The crisis is now pushing toward a full week of over 120,000 residents having no water supplying their homes and businesses, as Axios reports Saturday:

After a major water line break struck the city of more than 122,000 people amid scorching temperatures, local officials warned residents to protect themselves against the “imminent threat” of “widespread or severe damage, injury, or loss of life or property.”

It started Monday afternoon following a water line break, causing city authorities to quickly issue a city-wide emergency boil-water notice, as crews began to realize the breakage was significant.

The Associated Press cited city agencies which “said taps in 165,000 homes and businesses lost pressure or went completely dry after a 24-inch (61-centimeter) main broke Monday afternoon.”

    “Atlas” is visibly beginning to “shrug.” Not in the spectacular manner portrayed by Rand, although that is happening as well, but mostly with little note.

    We just returned from a family reunion in Austin. We stayed at a total of four different venues including the one hosting the reunion. It was startling the condition of the facilities and the number of machines/services either temporarily not working or “out of order.”

    I am afraid the seminal work of “fiction” Rand powerfully created is now unfolding before the eyes of all – at least those with eyes still able to “see”!


    • I’d say the one difference between Rand and present reality is that she didn’t imagine the degree of coordination among those who are trying to destroy the world. Certainly the world is falling apart bit by bit, as you observed in Austin and as envisioned by Rand. However, she didn’t contemplate the machinations of entities like the World Economic Forum, the Gates’ organizations, the Soros’ organizations, etc–top-down efforts to imposes globalist control. I believe she’d say that such efforts are doomed to failure. I would agree, but the failure may come only after an enormous amount of damage has been inflicted.
