Harvey Victims Need Food, Money -- How Can You Help?

    Victims of Hurricane/TS Harvey will need food, money, housing and clothing -- others may need blood. (Published Monday, Aug. 28, 2017)

    Nearly a week after making landfall along the Texas Gulf Coast, Hurricane/TS Harvey continues to drop an unprecedented and catastrophic amount of rainfall.

    Tens of thousands of Texans are expected to be impacted by the storm, whether by the initial landfall or the deluge of rain that fell in the days afterward.

    The director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Brock Long, said the government expects to conduct a "mass care mission" and predicted that the aftermath of the storm would require FEMA's involvement for years.
