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 Coastal Hideaway RV Park in Rockport, TX. Both 30- and 50-amp service is available. MDS work will be primarily new home construction. Houses will be framed and closed in by Disaster Aid Ohio, ready for interior completion as well as exterior painting. There will be ramp and porch
work at the beginning, before the framing of new homes is completed.
