With the situation in Houston being dire, people can’t afford to wait for first responders to rescue them. Neighbors are helping neighbors and strangers are helping strangers.
One of those helping others is singer Carl Thomas. He in in Houston helping those who need assistance in evacuating unsafe areas and homes due to Hurricane Harvey. The singer shared footage of him riding on his boat.
“I’m evacuating right now. I’ve got my dogs with me. Y’all pray for Houston. I’m not really worried, ultimately I know that whatever happens, it’s gonna be alright. It’s gonna be alright.”
“And waters are pretty high, you see me…I’m on a boat. Situation’s very serious. They’re evacuating our elderly and people that can’t help themselves.”
Meanwhile, as Hurricane Harvey continues to devastate Texas, celebrities, especially those with Houston ties, took to social media to say that they are thinking of Houston and everyone affected.
Houston native Beyoncè posted a photo showing her love and support.
Singer Kelly Rowland wrote on Instagram, “Houston has, and always will be the city that changed my LIFE! Everyone please send out prayers for H-Town!”
Barack Obama expressed his support for the beleaguered city in a Tweet:
Thank you to all the first responders and people helping each other out. That’s what we do as Americans. Here’s one way you can help now. https://t.co/iGfE8rAoAu

We are currently overseas in London and all I can think about is how devastated I am as I look at images of the damage Hurricane Harvey has caused. I am praying for the safety of all those affected. Houston has truly been a home to me over the last 8 years. Myself and @futuretheprince are working with local relief groups to aid and assist the people of Texas in anyway we can and in the most immediate way possible. I also want to thank all the men and women of service and volunteers for their courageous efforts to help people in need. I encourage everyone to do what they can to assist the people of Texas knowing whatever effort you can make to help will go a long way.
