BRB Hurricane Harvey Update: August 29, 2017

We’re still here.

Epic Flooding Inundates Houston After Hurricane Harvey
So fucking proud.

I’m tired. I’m also far more fortunate than I have a right to be. I have my family, and we’re safe. So many others in Houston can’t say the same. Harvey has wreaked havoc on our city, and recovery is going to be a long, slow, trying process.

In the face of so much destruction, there remains so much to celebrate. Houston doesn’t fold in the face of catastrophe. Houston doesn’t quit. Houston fights. Houston takes the worst a storm the likes Texas has never seen and shows the best humanity has to offer. Every time I think I can’t be any prouder of who we are, I am astonished anew.

We’ll have much more on how to help in the days to come. For now, know this:

  1. We’re here.
  2. We’re not going anywhere.
  3. We want to help.
  4. If you need help, let us know.
  5. BRB is a community ready to help our own and anyone else who needs it.
  6. Stay safe.
