Here's the latest on Rotary District 7230's response to Hurricane Harvey.Rotarians across District 7230 are saddened at the widespread devastation Hurricane Harvey has brought on the people of Texas and Lousiana. We stand by them as they begin their efforts to cope with this disaster and to rebuild their lives. Rotarians in the Texas and Louisiana Districts have stepped up to provide much-needed assistance to the victims.

Rotary clubs along the Gulf Coast of Texas and Louisiana, are collecting emergency relief funds to help the flood victims of Hurricane Harvey. Severe rainfall has caused historic flooding along the Texas coast, including in Houston, the fourth largest city by population in the United States. Deluged towns in the region are in desperate need of aid as thousands of residents were forced to flee their homes. About 6.8 million people have been affected by the hurricane, which made landfall on 25 August.

Our District Governor Barbara Harris Edwards is calling on all District Rotarians and their families and friends to open their hearts and donate for emergency relief as the District establishes a long-term plan to assist in the massive rehabilitation effort.

Several districts located along the Gulf coast in Texas and Louisiana have established disaster relief funds. Texas district 5840's website provides information about how to contribute to other district funds in Texas.

Please continue to keep all the people who have been impacted by this hurricane in your thoughts and prayers,as there is still a long way to go.
