An Elderly Man Was Trapped In His Car During A Hurricane In Texas So These Strangers Formed A Human Chain
Hurricane Harvey is one of the major storm-related disasters to hit landfall in the USA since 2005, currently causing a death toll of 70. On the 25th of August, it made its way to the state of Texas as a category 4 hurricane, Houston being the area of most flooding along with a few others. It has only gotten worse since and is now being regarded as a tropical storm.
