Hurricane Harvey has been causing a lot of trouble for the residents of Houston, Texas over the last few days, and it seems like the disaster is not over yet.
From flooding to extensive damage, we think it’s fair to say that the consequences have been nothing short of horrific for the city.
It’s so bad that residents have been warned to hang around on rooftops and wait for the emergency services to get to them. We can’t begin to imagine how horrible it must be for anyone involved.
The celebrity world is not staying silent about the matter and has reacted to the heartbreaking scenes playing out.
Beyonce took to Instagram to send her prayers to everyone involved.
In a short, but sweet Instagram post, the vocal powerhouse shared a picture of her holding up the state flag for Texas and confirming that everyone involved was in her prayers.
“Texas you are in my prayers,” the star shared.
Comedian, Kevin Hart has been instrumental in getting other celebrities to join forces and donate money to help the city rebuild in the aftermath of the hurricane.
“I’m calling this the Hurricane Harvey Relief Challenge….Lets go,” Hart revealed in a video on Instagram.
“I am getting a link together now people. Help me help Houston.”
He even tagged the likes of Chris Rock and Jay Z to help spread the word about the proposed relief efforts. Getting other celebrities involved will help raise awareness and help his message go further across the internet.
Katy Perry even opened up about it during her stint presenting the 2017 MTV VMAs. Her hosting was all over the place, but she did direct viewers to the Red Cross in order to donate money.
“If you are in the path of #HurricaneHarvey, please be safe and know the whole country is thinking of you,” Ellen Degeneres shared on Twitter after learning about the severity of the storm.
With flooding still widely expected to rock the City, there is no telling when the whole ordeal will be over.
