Texas devastation brings together hearts and helping hands — In our opinion

The Texas authorities expects the death toll to rise in the coming days as rescue efforts continue and more rain, rising rivers and surging floodwaters pummel the Gulf Coast.

They will join crews of two MH-65 Dolphin helicopters, who were sent on Friday from the Coast Guard's seasonal Air Facility in Waukegan, Ill.

"It was very emotional, weird and unsettling", she said.

"I am challenging a lot of my celebrity friends to follow my lead in donating $25,000", Hart said. "People want to help and people should take advantage of those opportunities to connect with people who want to help them".

"We use a different blend of gas that is only used here in California", GasBuddy Fuel Analyst Allison Mac explained. A video (above) shows the storm striking Corpus Christi and Houston hard, with howling winds at speeds of up to 130 mph, the pelting rain forcing the fourth largest city in the country to come to a standstill.

Torrential rain also hit areas more than 240 km away, swelling rivers upstream and causing a surge that was heading toward the Houston area. After the danger has passed, a more complete exploration of the medium's positive and negative impact will be possible, but in the chaos of the disaster, the power of social media is a big part of the story.

At least five people have died in the storm while thousands have had to be rescued. "So oil is not just trading within California alone", Sac State finance professor Sanjay Varshney explained. During his public briefing on Saturday, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott acknowledged Utah along with several other states for sending critical resources. If there is any blessing concerning hurricanes, it's that they can be predicted days in advance and preparations made.

The military's role in Harvey rescue and recovery efforts has been limited by weather and flooding but could soon expand by tenfold or more, a senior National Guard officer said Tuesday.

The city famous for its jazz music and cuisine is particularly vulnerable because it lies below sea level, and is fresh off another major flood earlier this month that was exacerbating by problems with the city pumping system.
