The rain from Hurricane Harvey in Texas hasn't stopped yet, and now it's also affecting parts of Louisiana.  Thousands of people have had to flee their homes and many have lost most of their possessions.

Kathy Stubbs of New Bedford and several other Red Cross volunteers from Southern New England have gone to the Houston area to help those who have been displaced.  According to, Air Station Cape Cod has also sent two helicopters and a plane to Texas.

But at this point, how can those living on the Southcoast best help those whose lives have been uprooted?  According to their websites, The Red Cross and The Salvation Army say cash donations are needed.  It's quick and easy to make a donation.  Here are the links to those websites:
