Pic Of Submerged Airplanes Is Fake
If you see this picture (purported to be the Houston airport) floating around on the interwebz, please don't share.
The caption with the pic claims that the airplanes are at the airport in Houston and that they were inundated flood waters from Harvey. The original picture appears to have been taken at LaGuardia near New York. That picture was then manipulated to add water.
Please remember to verify before sharing, we don't need to perpetuate falsehoods!
If you want to share something, share information about how to help those affected by the flooding.
