As flooding from Tropical Storm Harvey continues in and around Houston, Texas, many people in the Miami Valley are wondering how they can help.
Officials with the American Red Cross are urging people to consider volunteering, or donating to the relief effort.
To donate by text message, text the words “Red Cross” to 90999. Donations are also accepted at the Red Cross’ website.
Red Cross officials say at least 18 volunteers have deployed to Texas from the Miami Valley so far.
