Here's How You Can Help in the Aftermath of Hurricane Harvey


"On Friday evening, A Category 4 Hurricane rocked the coast of Texas affecting several cities, including my current home in Houston, TX. With Hurricane Harvey, came over 50+ inches of floodwaters, fires, tornadoes, and thousands of displaced Texans fighting for their lives, their homes, and their vehicles. Both Houston airports are completely flooded and have cancelled all travel indefinitely, and major portions of our freeways across the south east region of Texas have vehicles completely underwater, and have been rendered inaccessible for an unknown amount of time. Several levees have also either broken, or are being released in order to combat the rising floodwaters. What's more, it has not stopped raining yet. To put this into perspective, Houston on average receives 50 inches of rain a year, which we have gone well over in the past 3 days alone, along with being home to 6.5 million people. This is a disaster zone."
