Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner today held a news conference to accept donations totaling $580,000 in support of Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts.

Turner noted that many people remain impacted by the storm, from the disabled to the middle class.

“They've exhausted their savings, and they're asking the question where do we go from here, and where will the help come from,” Turner said. “Your contribution this morning is an answer to some of those questions.” Listen (9:38)
