Lots of people in our area are wondering what they can do to help, both during rescue and in the recovery of the aftermath of Tropical Storm Harvey.
This particular list was put together for those wishing to donate through kwCares, and to me contains extremely practical items that will be greatly appreciated.
Also, the state has sent up a volunteer and donate section on its website, VolunteerLouisiana.gov. They are identifying new opportunities as they become available, with the newest listed first, but in Louisiana and Texas.
Meanwhile, even as Tropical Storm Harvey continues to pound Texas and Louisiana, the rainfall from the system has already set a preliminary all-time lower 48 states record. A rain gauge in Harris County reported a four day storm total of 49.32 inches through 9am this morning.
