Houston and several other neighboring cities in Texas are facing the lasting damage from Hurricane Harvey. Since its start on Friday (August 25), more than 20 inches of rainfall has been dumped and various parts of southeast Texas may experience additional pouring in the coming two or three days.
Thankfully, there are plenty of celebrities, including Drake and Beyoncé, who are using their voices to raise awareness for the tragic events. Over the weekend, several star-studded names shared their concern for the the Category 4 storm, which marks the strongest hurricane to hit the United States since Wilma in 2005. Take a look to see how some celebrities are reacting to the deadly Texas floods.
For information on how you can help those affected by Hurricane Harvey, head over to the official website for the American Red Cross or text the word HARVEY to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
We are currently overseas in London and all I can think about is how devastated I am as I look at images of the damage Hurricane Harvey has caused. I am praying for the safety of all those affected. Houston has truly been a home to me over the last 8 years. Myself and @futuretheprince are working with local relief groups to aid and assist the people of Texas in anyway we can and in the most immediate way possible. I also want to thank all the men and women of service and volunteers for their courageous efforts to help people in need. I encourage everyone to do what they can to assist the people of Texas knowing whatever effort you can make to help will go a long way.
Just got home from Texas. I was in San Antonio, so it wasn't as bad as other areas of Texas. I'm praying for my home state and all those who are suffering through the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Stay strong Texas and a big Texas size thank you to all the first responders, National Guard, Red Cross, volunteers, etc. Everything is bigger in Texas, and that includes our hearts and capacity to help. #GodBlessTexas 🙏🏻
Very easy thing I just did. You can too, if you're so inclined. Text HARVEY to 90999 to donate 10 dollars to the @americanredcross for hurricane relief AND/OR text HURRICANE to 20222 to donate 25 dollars to @savethechildren. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in the path of Hurricane Harvey. ❤️
