Here’s How You Can Help Those Affected By Hurricane Harvey

After making landfall in Texas late Friday night, Hurricane Harvey is currently wreaking havoc on the state, reportedly causing widespread power outages, flooding, fires and tornadoes.

According to Fox News, this is the largest hurricane to hit the state of Texas in more than a decade.

12 News reports that at least three homes in one area were destroyed when a fire broke out on Bolivar Peninsula on Friday night, made worse by the high winds that whipped the flames about.

News.com.au, meanwhile, quotes officials as warning of “life threatening” flooding that – combined with the other effects of Hurricane Harvey – could see the cost of damage reach $40 billion.

In addition to praying for those currently affected by Hurricane Harvey, please consider donating to one of the many certified charities that will be offering humanitarian aid.
