Texans are facing one of their toughest times in recent years following the Category 4 Hurricane Harvey that hit the state on August 25.
The last time a natural disaster of this magnitude hit Texas was in 2008 with Hurricane Ike. Harvey, which left behind a historic flooding, especially in Houston, is one of the strongest hurricanes to hit the U.S. in over 10 years since Hurricane Wilma in 2005.
There are many ways to help the victims; however, the CIDI recommends to make monetary contributions because "cash donations allow relief supplies to be purchased near the disaster site, avoiding delays, and steep transportation and logistical costs that can encumber material donations."
Amid the catastrophe, people on the internet can't help but praise how everyone in Texas is helping each other out. It's truly inspirational, heartwarming, and just the lesson the rest of America needs. The following #HoustonStrong tweets pretty much sum it up:
U.S. Coast Guard
