Thousands of people have been affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas and they are in desperate need of help.
At least five people have been killed, more than a dozen injured, the Coast Guard rescued dozens and Houston, the fourth-largest city in the United States, has been inundated.
Unlike many other cities in the hurricane’s path, Houston did not order evacuations before the storm, and countless residents were trapped in flooding homes.
The American Red Cross is helping the people affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas and all across the Gulf coast. Shelters are open, truck loads of supplies are being distributed and volunteers in place.
