Here's How You Can Give — And Receive — Relief From Tropical Storm Nicholas
Tropical Storm Nicholas dumped more than a foot of rain along the Texas coastal region early Tuesday morning. Roadways are flooded and more than 400,000 Harris County homes are without power with no timeline of when it may be restored.
Gov. Greg Abbott ordered the Texas State Operations Center to prepare ahead of Nicholas. Swift water rescue boats, helicopters and ground vehicles were made available for potential water rescues. As of Tuesday afternoon no fatalities were reported.
