DETROIT (WWJ) – Hurricane Harvey continues to dump historic levels of rainfall on the Houston area and it’s not expected to let up for days. Thousands of people scrambled for safety as rising water flooded homes, senior care facilities and challenged first responders who could not keep up with the overwhelming demand for help.

The National Weather Service says flooding isn’t expected to peak until Wednesday or Thursday.

Elaine Duke, Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, telling CBSNews at a Monday morning briefing. “Harvey is still a dangerous and historic storm.”


Two organizations: American Red Cross and Salvation Army – are leading efforts and either or both would be worthy of promoting. Cash donations are the quickest way for your listeners to make an impact.
