Boston, MA, August 30, 2017 - On behalf of FEMA, early Monday morning Dennis K Burke mobilized several tankers to head out to Fort Hood military base outside of Houston, Texas, to help with the area’s emergency management needs in the wake of unprecedented disaster from Hurricane Harvey. Dennis K Burke Inc. has worked with FEMA before in a post-storm emergency response capacity and look forward to doing everything they can to help Texas recover from this devastation as quickly as possible.
As you probably have seen, Harvey made landfall as a Category 4 storm and has dumped a years’ worth of rain on the Houston & Southeast Texas areas, causing devastating floods. To put the amount of rain Texas has received in perspective, according to the National Weather Service, “if Southeast Texas were New England, the area in which 20-30 inches of rain had fallen over the first 3 days of the storm would encompass all of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut.”
The NWS is keeping an eye on the storm, which is impacting Louisiana currently on its track back to the Gulf. Obviously, this storm could continue to have substantial impacts. To keep up on the latest alerts, visit the National Weather Service here: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/#Harvey
