Texas Floods/Ways to Help

Here at Texas Towns Revealed we want to let everyone know that our prayers are going out to all those Texans who were affected by the recent flooding and tornadoes.

Here’s a video of what Shoal Creek looked like as downtown Austin flooded:

Here in Austin, I saw some of the craziest flooding of my life. My parents were safe since they live pretty far south from Houston. For a while, I was sure that my apartment was going to flood, but thank God it didn’t.

Several people I know were affected by the flooding in Austin, as well as the many others across Texas. If you’re able, find a Red Cross donation center, or help by fostering some animals from a local shelter. Any help will surely be appreciated!

Central Texas Red Cross – 1-877-500-8645 is the national hotline for anyone affected by the storms

HOW TO HELP: To help people affected by these storms and other disasters big and small, donate at RedCross.org, call 1-800-REDCROSS or text REDCROSS to 90999.
