    Feeling the crunch of dry earth below our feet as we watch the smoke get worse


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Yousif Salama and his sister Helen were out getting a flu shot when they noticed smoke going up nearby in Houston, Texas, on September 13. They shot images of the rising plume. Helen Salama said the fire moved rapidly. 'In a few seconds it went from being one chain of smoke to three different huge clouds of smoke.' Yousif Salama said the drought has been severe and he wonders if the whole area will be burned up if no rain comes. 'Yes, it's pretty bad. Everywhere you step, even if it's well-irrigated, it's still crunchy.' He also said more roaches, geckos and earwigs are coming inside due to drought.
