Anheuser-Busch Producing Canned Water for Flood Victims in Texas and Oklahoma

Now, that is true American charity. Anheuser Busch has stopped beer production in Georgia, so they can produce 50,000 cans of water for Texas and Oklahoma during the monumental rains we’ve had. In some places in Oklahoma, close to 20 inches of rain has fallen. Less rain in Texas, although not by much, but worse flooding has occurred and a number of deaths. Ironically, water is needed badly as many sources have been contaminated during the storms and overflow. Dams are close to breaching, homes have been destroyed and/or swept away and dozens of people are missing. It is a great, kind and much needed act of generosity that this beer plant is performing.

From Fox Business:

An Anheuser Busch (BUD) plant in northwest Georgia has started canning water instead of beer to help flood victims in Texas and Oklahoma.

Multiple media outlets report the Cartersville plant halted its beer production to produce 50,000 cans of water to distribute to the flooded areas by this weekend.

Cartersville brewery manager Rob Haas told NBC News the brewery has participated in similar initiatives in the past, including during the Northeast’s recovery from Superstorm Sandy.

The brewery even has a special white can that it uses for the water.

It’s like heaven’s flood gates have opened recently around here. The drought that plagued both states is now officially over, but the clean up will take a long, long time. Right now, here in Oklahoma anyway, next week seems pretty dry so far. So, I am hopeful things will start to recede and return to normal. The creek/river near our home is full and overflowing. We are on high ground, so we are fortunate. Oklahoma City is having it very rough indeed and Houston is absolutely under water. Texans and Oklahomans are made of tough stock though and they’ll get through this – with a little help from their friends of course.
