THE HARVEY EFFORT
Solel International Safety Steps -Gulf Coast Residents to Heed Evacuation Orders
Houston, TX., August 29, 2017 — Hurricane Harvey is now listed as the most deadly and devastating hurricane to strike the United States in over a decade. Currently 1 billion plus gallons of water has ravaged the Houston, Texas area.
Hurricane Harvey made landfall along the Texas Gulf Coast with over 100 mph winds and up to 35 inches of rain, leading to devastating and life-threatening flooding. The storm is expected to hover over parts of Texas and Louisiana for several days.
Evacuation orders are in effect throughout parts of the two states. “It's time for all people to meet each other with love and uplift fallen humanity” said Danny Asberry El -President of Solel International . We are launching our largest hurricane relief effort in years, and with the help of our partners from the Houston Zydeco Community namely Ruben Moreno and fans and the Texas Trail-raiders communities.
We have contributed to saving 60+ rescues and the numbers increase.
