Houston — Mayor Sylvester Turner has asked the American Red Cross to open two shelters to ensure the safety of those in the community facing possible widespread damage due to Tropical Storm Harvey.

“Opening shelters for Houstonians is the next step in calm care for our city as we face the prospect of several days of heavy rain,” Mayor Sylvester Turner said. “We want to assure people who live in flood prone areas, as well our most vulnerable residents, that resources will be available if they need them. With the experience of the American Red Cross on our side, we will continue to muster every available resource to protect all residents as much as possible from this very unpredictable threat.”

“We are in complete agreement with the Mayor and share the same commitment to the safety of our citizens,” said David Brady, Regional Chief Executive Officer, American Red Cross of the Texas Gulf Coast. “We will continue working with the City to ensure all citizens receive food, shelter and comfort in the wake of this horrific storm.”
