Hurricane Harvey – Golden Triangle Response

About NECHAMA’s Harvey Response

In August 2017, Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas, devastating large sections of the Texas coast and inland. It was the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States since Wilma in 2005, ending a record 12-year span in which no hurricanes made landfall at such an intensity in the country. In a four-day period, many areas received more than 40 inches of rain as the system slowly meandered over eastern Texas and adjacent waters, causing catastrophic flooding. The resulting floods inundated hundreds of thousands of homes, displaced more than 30,000 people, and prompted more than 17,000 rescues.

NECHAMA responded shortly after the event, and after assisting more than 180 storm-affected families in Houston, our team is now working in Southeast Texas by the Lousiana border in an area known as the Golden Triangle – Beaumont, Port Arthur, and Orange, TX.
