Hurricane Harvey reached tropical storm status on August 17, 2017 and continued to develop and intensify, becoming a category 3 hurricane that finally dissipated on September 3, 2017. It was the costliest natural disaster ever on record in the U.S. and the first major hurricane to make landfall on U.S. soil since 2005. There were 91 confirmed deaths and more than 300,000 people were left without electricity. Many people were displaced and thousands of homes were destroyed or sustained major damage.
MDS volunteers will be staying at 1618 W Corpus Christi Street in Rockport, TX. The RV sites have both 30- and 50- amp service. Additionally, the MDS office and dining area will be located in the house on the property.
MDS work will be primarily interior finish work on new builds. This may include drywall finish, trim, flooring, paint, cabinets, and possibly some siding and exterior paint. There may also be some repair work.
