The disastrous storm that has greatly impacted many people is continually battering Texas and Louisiana. The destruction of homes, businesses, and infrastructure will take years and billions of dollars to recover from.

Hurricane Harvey centered over Houston on Friday, with wind speeds of up to 130 miles an hour. Flooding in streets and homes has caused many people to evacuate. Harvey is now the largest rainstorm in the history of the continental United States with over 55 inches of rain in some areas. Now becoming a tropical storm the rain level has significantly decreased.

As Harvey moves into Louisiana, people are having memories of Hurricane Katrina, which took place 12 years ago to this week. Many cities affected by the Hurricane are without electricity and running water. Some are stuck in their homes without food, and are not able to go to the grocery store. The Texas Coast Guard has rescued over 6,000 people and firefighters rescued several thousand more in the Houston area. The Addicks Dam in Houston overflowed for the first time, but as of now the water level has receded. People and animals are using every possible means to evacuate and survive. So far there have been 39 reported deaths, and 450,000 people have been registered disaster victims.

Many have fled to shelters for refuge, but the people of Texas and Louisiana need help. You can help by donating to the Red Cross, the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, the Houston Flood Relief Fund, and many other organizations. Although many are struggling, neighbors and strangers are pulling together to comfort one another in this scary situation.

Despite all the recent turmoil and intolerance in our country, Hurricane Harvey has been a great example of humanity, and moral values regardless of race, religion or beliefs. We are keeping all the victims of Hurricane Harvey in our thoughts and prayers, and know that God will protect them, and all America will reach out to help.
