Houston, Texas was rampant with submerged roads, power loss, tornado warnings, and widespread damage as Hurricane Harvey’s unyielding rain fell over the nation’s fourth most-populous city. The catastrophic aftermath likely destroyed more vehicles than any other natural disaster in U.S. history, according to several early estimates.
The storm may have ruined up to one million vehicles along the Texas Gulf Coast. In the Houston area, about one in seven cars may have been destroyed. Thousands of homes became unlivable.
In and around Houston, very few people have flood insurance; only about one-sixth of all homeowners. Homeowners and renters alike will find out that their buckled floors and moldy walls aren't covered by their standard homeowners’ policy.
United States Poverty Project is working with our partners to tend to the needs of the Gulf Coast children. Their desperate need for relief is evident, but without your help their needs will not be met.

Unlike material donations, cash involves no transportation costs, shipping delays, or customs fees. It also enables relief organizations to spend more time providing aid by spending less time managing goods.
Puerto Rico Suffered one of the worst natural disasters in history. And now most Americans who live there don't have the basics; food, water or electricity
While about 5 percent of electricity had been restored across the island by Monday night, generators remain the only source of power for more than 3 million American citizens.
The storm killed at least 16 and left the island littered with rubble from demolished homes and downed trees and power lines.
