Natural disasters are painful reminders that anything can change in instant.

Just recently, a category 4 monstrous hurricane hit Houston, Texas. Houston is located in a low-lying area thus no matter how seriously prepared they got, the storm still surprised them by its strength and amount of rain it left.

People living outside the area are able to raise help through social media. By posting addresses, contact numbers and pictures of affected citizens in Houston, it gets easier for rescuers to reach their locations.

Check out PeN Chat’s SOS feature. You can ask for help anytime, anywhere!


The hurricane seriously caused damaged properties and cost lives but on the other hand, it has also  paved way to show the true spirit of heroism among Americans.

A number of posts online are truly inspiring to see making humanity alive again.

The hurricane is reported to be far from over. Dams are starting to pour out and more rain are expected to land.


These people are making the situation a lot easier and their characters have made a mark on every person’s life they have helped.


Hurricane Harvey may have devastated the entire city but never will it crush the spirit of a true-blue American.

We are with you during these trying times.

Texans will surely recover from this.
