The extreme waterlogged devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas has prompted Columbus-area companies, including Aflac and TSYS, to make monetary donations that will aid those suffering through the tragedy, while also encouraging others to do so.
Insurance firm Aflac said it is making a $500,000 contribution to the American Red Cross in Texas, an organization that is assisting residents who have been forced out of their homes by rainfall totals between 40 to 50 inches from Houston east to Beaumont. Harvey slammed the Texas Gulf Coast last Friday, then just sat in the area, spinning flooding rains for several days with little movement, creating the natural disaster.
