How to Help the Red Cross Respond to Harvey

Corporate America donates millions to Harvey relief

The Red Cross has sent 22 volunteers from Minnesota to help flood victims, and officials say they will be there as long as they need to be.

They're going to load up between 4 to 6 trailers full of supplies, including water, snacks, first aid supplies and other basics.

NY is sending 120 of its Bravest and Finest to Texas to rescue people from the epic storm, officials announced Sunday. The Red Cross trains and mobilizes more than 5,300 volunteers who support the delivery of services throughout the state.

Spencer Ware has torn PCL, expected to miss season
He damaged those and, at this point in time, our medical staff believes he needs season-ending surgery to correct that problem. Ware was Kansas City's leading rusher in 2016, racking up 921 yards, plus another 447 in receiving yardage.

14 volunteers from the Western and Central New York region are deploying to the Gulf Coast.

Hurricane Harvey is slated for landfall along the Texas Gulf Coast with winds over 100 miles per hour and up to 35 inches of rain, leading to devastating and life-threatening flooding.

The Red Cross prepared tens of thousands of ready-to-eat meals, "truckloads" of kitchen supplies and more than 40 Red Cross emergency response vehicles are ready to go. The hurricane has made landfall Friday and caused severe flooding.

US Existing Home Sales Unexpectedly Drop To Eleven-Month Low In July
The consensus estimate called for sales to reach 5.57 million, according to a survey of economists polled by Bloomberg. The number of existing homes listed for sale has plunged 9 percent over the past 12 months to 1.92 million properties.

But perhaps the easiest way to help is to donate $10 to the Red Cross by texting the word REDCROSS to 90999.

"If you've ever considered becoming a volunteer for the Red Cross, now is the time", Springs said. Throughout the day, emergency responders combed through the debris of collapsed buildings, broken power poles and uprooted palm trees as heavy rain and lashing winds continued to pound the area.

"We'll celebrate down in Texas", said O'Neill. "And we need folks to continue to hold up people in prayer and in their thoughts as we deal with this monster of a storm". To help with the coming relief efforts, Apple has begun accepting donations for the Red Cross through iTunes.

SpaceX launch planned Thursday at Vandenberg AFB
Formosat-5 also carries a secondary payload, an ionospheric probe for scientific research. SpaceX later discontinued the Falcon 1, moving Formosat-5 to a larger Falcon 9 vehicle.

If you want to help but can't respond to disasters, Mike Mitchell, the executive director of the local chapter of the Red Cross, advised giving blood.
