Water, most of the time, can be a blank canvas for adventure. We’ve seen the most recent demonstration that she’s also a powerful force to be reckoned with—a force with no scruples or biases—that has turned streets into riverbeds over the last week as Hurricane Harvey parked itself over the coast of Texas.
A Facebook user riding down Highway 90 the other day took this video of a long line of small boats being trailered into Houston to help with rescue efforts. If you’ve got a small-boat story related to Harvey, Small Boats Monthly wants to hear about it. If you’re one of the people who are able to help out, we wish you all the best for safety and success.
If you’re wondering what to do from afar, there are a lot of options. The Houston Food Bank will be doing a massive amount of work for years after the rain and flooding subsides, and here’s a great list of local organizations who are on the ground helping people, saving pets, and assessing homes so people can start putting their lives back together.
Stay safe out there.
