JEWISH ORANGE, TEXAS:

  1. JEWISH CEMETERIES
Orange is a city in Orange County, Texas, United States. As of the 2000 census, the city population was 18,643. It is the county seat of Orange County , and is the easternmost city in Texas. Located on the Sabine River at the border with Louisiana, it is part of the BeaumontPort Arthur Metropolitan Statistical Area. Founded in 1836, it is a deep-water port (to the Gulf of Mexico).

Hurricane Ike

Orange, Texas was heavily damaged by Hurricane Ike on September 13, 2008, and is now in the slow process of recovering and rebuilding.  Damage was widespread and severe across Orange County. The 22-foot (6.7 m) storm surge breached the city's levees, caused catastrophic flooding and obliterated everything in its path. The storm surge travelled up the Neches River to also flood Rose City.

Orange received winds at hurricane force. Nearly the entire CITIES of 19,000 people was flooded, anywhere from 6 inches (15 cm) to 15 feet (4.5 m).  The mayor of the city said about 375 people, of those who stayed behind during the storm, began to emerge, some needing food, water and medical care.  Many dead fish littered streets and properties. Neighbor Bridge City Mayor Kirk Roccaforte estimated that only 14 homes in the city were unaffected by the surge, five of which were in the Oakview addition on Louise Street in Bridge City. The piles of debris and waterlogged furniture placed outside homes by residents beginning to clean up led the mayor to say "The whole city looks like a flea market.  During the post-storm cleanup, Bridge City residents found swimming pools had been occupied by jellyfish brought inland with the water.  Three people were found dead in Orange County on September 29.
