How Hurricane Harvey Affected Houston
Houston is home to the most diverse metropolitan area in the United States. The metropolitan area has a population of over 2.3 million people and encompasses a wide range of cultures and races.
Houston is also home to Houston, the largest city in Texas with a population of over 2.1 million people. According to reports, Hurricane Harvey caused extensive damage to Houston and surrounding areas.
The hurricane made landfall on August 25 as a Category 4 storm, making it one of the strongest hurricanes to hit the US mainland in decades. Harvey weakened as it moved over Texas but regained strength as it moved into Louisiana and Mississippi. In total, Harvey caused more than $125 billion in damage, making it one of the costliest hurricanes in US history.

The Race to Rescue People in Houston
Houston was hit with Hurricane Harvey on August 25, 2017. The storm caused heavy flooding in the city and surrounding areas. As rescues continued, many stories of heroism surfaced. Here is one such story from behind the scenes.
On August 27, 2017, a group of Houston-area residents banded together to form a rescue team to help those trapped by the floodwaters. The team’s goal was to reach people who were stranded in their homes or in evacuation centers.
The team consisted of 10 firefighters, 10 EMTs, and 10 civilians who had experience with search and rescue operations. They met at a fire station and began their journey to help those affected by the hurricane.
Their first stop was an evacuation center in northwest Houston. There they found dozens of people who were waiting to be rescued. The team then set off for homes that were flooded due to the hurricane.
In total, the team rescued 97 people from their homes and evacuation centers. Their efforts were crucial in helping people stay safe during the crisis.
The Power of Social Media
Social media has been a powerful tool for connecting people around the world in a way that was never possible before. In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, social media played an important role in helping those affected by the storm. From providing information about shelters and evacuation routes to raising money for relief efforts, social media played a significant role in helping those impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
How the Red Cross Helped Victims of Hurricane Harvey
The Red Cross was founded in 1881 by Clara Barton and is the world’s largest humanitarian organization with more than 200 million supporters. The Red Cross is on the ground in Texas providing help to those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
In a time of crisis, the Red Cross does what it does best: mobilize resources and get people to safety. As Hurricane Harvey made landfall on Aug. 25, 2017, the Red Cross was ready with shelters and food for those affected. The organization also activated its Disaster Response team to provide support as needed. In just three days, the Red Cross had responded to more than 7,000 calls for help in Texas alone.
The response from the Red Cross was significant, but it wasn’t the only organization on the ground providing relief. Enter Habitat for Humanity, which has been working in Texas since before Harvey made landfall. Habitat for Humanity provides housing and essential services such as clean water and hygiene education to low-income communities in need. In just 24 hours after Harvey made landfall, Habitat had started construction on 28 homes in Houston.
These two organizations are just a few of the many that are working
