Over 1 million people are estimated to have evacuated their homes. The Governor has activated all of the Texas National Guard to help with those rescues. As well, in the spirit of being American, hundreds of volunteers and civilians have arrived with boats like the Cajun Navy and supplies to help their fellow neighbors. WANT TO HELP?

Here are a few: , , Red Cross donations to this link go directly to those affected by Harvey: and Salvation Army are also choices. * Bay Area – The United States closed the Russian San Francisco consulate and forced the scaling back of the Washington and New York consulates.
