The Impact of Hurricane Harvey in Pictures

By Shannon Henderson Published on August 28, 2017

Devastation. No one image can capture the wreckage being wrought by Harvey, the once-Category 4 hurricane that even as a tropical storm is bringing historic flooding and damage to south-eastern Texas and Louisiana. Here are a handful of shots that help in some small way to depict the size and scope of the Harvey story.

Meanwhile, we continue praying for the safety of residents, rescuers and first responders currently in the midst of the storm.
