Millions in Texas have been impacted by torrential rain and significant flooding from Hurricane Harvey. Leaders are directing Americans looking to donate to the Red Cross.
Hurricane Harvey dumped as much as 30 inches of rain on Houston and other areas of Texas this weekend, leaving “[m]ore than 30,000 people” in need of shelters and causing untold amounts of damage to a major U.S. city.
The federal government is coordinating President Trump, Chief of Staff John Kelly, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Cabinet officials, the governors of Texas and Louisiana, and state and local officials in an effort to keep everyone safe and dry.
FEMA tweeted on Sunday night about the support it has provided in just a few days since the hurricane hit:

The mayor of Houston, Sylvester Turner, has been active on Twitter directing residents to resources and help:
And both Vice President Mike Pence and former President Barack Obama directed people who want to donate in the effort to the Red Cross this weekend.
