Local reverend to help Harvey victims as he did during Katrina

An abandoned car is seen in flood waters under an interstate 10 bridge in Houston

Hurricane Harvey made landfall almost 12 years after this country's most devastating storm, Hurricane Katrina. "It was basically like watching everything over again, and there's nothing I can do", she told the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "I was very fortunate to leave before the storm, but it's exactly what I saw".

Returning on a regular basis, Rev Dart's knowledge and experience runs deep like the floodwaters now ravaging the Bayou City as Houston is known. This year the anniversary comes just days after Hurricane Harvey became the strongest storm to hit Texas in decades, leaving behind historic flooding in Houston.

Wisconsin: Hornibrook, a sophomore, finished 15 of 23 for 244 yards, and completed 13 of his final 17 attempts. With the running game starting to come around, Bradrick Shaw punched it in from three yards out.

With Katrina, over a million people were displaced from their homes, and 250,000 homes were damaged or destroyed. There were breaches of levees in New Orleans as Katrina brought 5 to 10 inches of rain over 48 hours.

Some in New Orleans also hoped that their city's slow recuperation after Hurricane Katrina could inform the Harvey recovery. "People were blamed for their condition and by blaming the people, then you have no trouble just forgetting about them, discounting them and I pray that doesn't happen with Harvey". "It will affect roadways, it will affect underground infrastructure, it will affect pipelines, electrical systems, not to mention building structures ... so expect that this water will have multitudes of repercussions of urban infrastructure writ large".
