The pictures and video out of south Texas are heartbreaking and the situation isn't going to improve anytime soon.

The best thing we can do is support those that are supporting them. The American Red Cross and Salvation Army are on the scene providing assistance, shelter, and relief to those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

The storm and record breaking rainfall has impacted millions in the Houston area and the Gulf Coast.

According to local Red Cross and Salvation Army officials, the best action for us to take is to donate money. We're too far away to provide much in the way of supplies so a monetary donation is a proper action to take.
