He might try the American Red Cross Safe & Well site, available through the Texas Hurricane Center webpage (link on right side).

plodr, wow that was good under cover work...and a real injustice to her and the family
if this is the true Bret Lowry family our hearts and prayers to you all

As it turns out, I heard from Bret just a few minutes ago and the unfortunate thing is that Hurricane Irma hit them very hard and they are down to a skeleton crew. Bret assured me that the servers will remain running.
C was that his relations??

Thanks Bill.
I'm not so sure that they'd know to do this:

These people are in their mid 80's and might have never had a computer and/or smart phone.
Their phone number hasn't changed and goes unanswered.

If that old, and assuming they are still alive and well, I can only assume they relocated to some assisted living facility.

If your husband is that concerned, he should call the local sheriff's office. I am sure they can point him in the right direction to at least learn of their fate.  I would not expect the sheriff's office will divulge any private/personal information, but your husband should be able to find out if they survived the storm.

It is not my husband who "knows" these people. It is for an 86 year old friend of ours.
My husband found an alternate address 7 miles away from their old address. (We have no idea if they moved to a new place or moved in with family members.)  We told the concerned couple to send a card or note to the address my husband was able to unearth because obviously we don't have a working phone number for the couple in Texas.
