    Residents across the Houston area are starting to wrap up the monthslong effort of removing debris created by Hurricane Harvey.

    The Houston Chronicle reports that local counties and cities have been working with contractors and the Texas Transportation Department to haul away piles of trash from in front of peoples' homes in the three months since Harvey hit and unleashed record flooding.

    Several jurisdictions plan to finish debris removal at least by Christmas. Harris County officials say they'd hoped to finish by Thanksgiving, but the county came across more debris than expected on a third and final pass through neighborhoods.

    Crews had picked up more than a million cubic yards of trash, or about 26,000 truckloads, as of mid-November.

    Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    [DFW] Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    Domino's Pizza is tweaking its home delivery service for those times you're not at home.
    After years of delivery right to your doorstep, Domino's drivers will now deliver to outdoor locations.
    That includes beaches, parks, landmarks, and other outdoor locations across the country.
    Domino's says its drivers will deliver to 150-thousand locations from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.
    The locations are now active and show up in the company's app or website as "Domino's Hotspots."
    Customers pre-pay for their orders, select a location, and your pizza is on the way.
    Previously, Domino's delivered to offbeat locations, but, the new service sets up designated drop off points.
    The service was tested last fall in Miami before being rolled out nationwide.
