More than 2000 Texas Guardmen activated for Hurricane Harvey operation”

While Harvey may soon weaken to a tropical depression, it's now stalled over the region and continues to pound the area with catastrophic wind and rain, which officials believe will last for "four to five days" and cause "catastrophic flooding".

Western Massachusetts is represented among the Red Cross volunteers from all over the country doing humanitarian work in the hurricane ravaged areas of Texas.

About 45 emergency responders from Colorado are heading to Texas to help with search and rescue efforts after Hurricane Harvey. "However, our team will continue as long as they are needed".

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

Disaster relief kits with donation supplies and diapers will go to those affected in Texas.
