  • Corporate America donates millions to Harvey relief

A second group from Indiana's Task Force One is heading to Texas as "catastrophic" flooding from Hurricane Harvey continues to paralyze Houston and surrounding areas in the southeastern part of the state.

Tens of thousands are expected to be impacted by the storm, whether by the initial landfall or the deluge of rain that fell in the days afterward.

The Red Cross has enough shelter supplies in Texas to support 28,000 people and supplies for an additional 22,000 people are being sent in now.

New York City is sending 120 emergency personnel to Texas to assist in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced early Sunday. "They are always ready to go and do what they need to help". "We're thankful for the dedication of volunteers who are willing to help those in need".

As for the others, some players have an argument, but outside of Cabrera and Sanchez, their punishments were pretty light. He's gonna protect his teammates, he loves his teammates, he's got a lot of fire and fight and I like that about it.

Red Cross volunteers are headed from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to those states all weekend, along with emergency response vehicles.

The Red Cross is also working in close collaboration with government officials and community partners in both Texas and Louisiana to coordinate potential response efforts.

Donations will help to get supplies for 20,000 people, hot meals, bleach to help clean mold from houses and clean up kits. The Red Cross honors donor intent. You can also make a $10 donation by texting "REDCROSS" to 90999. This time last week, the company opened a donation page to the Southern Poverty Law Center, after clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia led to multiple deaths. "And we assist with feeding and disaster mental health".

The Red Cross is always seeking volunteers.
