Hurricane Harvey made landfall along the Texas Gulf Coast with over 100 miles per hour winds and up to 35 inches of rain, leading to devastating and life-threatening flooding.


At least two people were dead and 12 or more were injured as a result of the hurricane Sunday morning.

Hurricane Harvey has been downgraded to a tropical storm, but it's still taking a toll on residents. This time last week, the company opened a donation page to the Southern Poverty Law Center, after clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia led to multiple deaths.

"Wind is something we can deal with", Diskin said. "We're looking at measuring rainfall not in inches, but in feet".

"The Red Cross is always at the ready, so we have volunteers ready to deploy to disaster sites 24-7", Rabenstine said. He believes they'll spend weeks on the ground helping people get back on their feet.

New York City on Sunday deployed to Houston the Office of Emergency Management's Urban Search & Rescue New York Task Force One, an 80-member unit including representatives of the NYPD and FDNY, as well as EMS responders.
