You may be seeing Houston and many of its victims in the news as they face of hurricane Harvey. You can hashtag your thoughts or even change your filter on Facebook. Keeping someone in your thoughts is always nice but see how you can help here locally.

The end of Hurricane Harvey doesn't seem to be near. With water already knee-deep in some areas of Texas, another two feet of rain fall is expected by Thursday.

According to The Washington Post, roughly 2,000 people have been moved to safety, nine have been reported dead and authorities believe they will need to prepare to raise their rescue efforts.

You can help right here in the Hudson Valley by donating to the American Red Cross.
