A former Christian County resident is one of millions of people dealing with the record-breaking rainfall in Texas and Louisiana from Hurricane Harvey. Larry Dilley grew up in Pana, and now lives in Freeport, Texas, about 45 miles south of Houston along the gulf coast.

 

Dilley estimates that Freeport has received about 20 inches of rain since Harvey started hitting the area late last week. He says in Brazoria County, Texas where he lives, there are two major rivers, and both are out of their banks.

 

 

Dilley says emergency crews and other outside aid have been working tirelessly to help those in need, but they have been working round the clock for days.

 

 

Dilley says people can help by calling the American Red Cross or the Salvation Army, but the storm is still not over for those in Freeport, and the Texas and Louisiana Coast.
