Don’t Worry Houston, Jake Paul Is Now On His Way!

Jake Paul and some of his crew from Team 10 today announced on YouTube that they are heading towards the devastation left behind from the Hurricane Harvey to give and sort of help they can.

Hurricane Harvey was the costliest tropical cyclone on record, inflicting approximately $125 billion  in damage, primarily from widespread flooding in the Houston metropolitan area.

It was the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States since Wilma in 2005, ending a record 12-year span in which no hurricanes made landfall at such an intensity in the country.

The eighth named storm, third hurricane, and the first major hurricane of the extremely active 2017 Atlantic hurricane season, Harvey developed from a tropical wave to the east of the Lesser Antilles, reaching tropical storm status on August 17th 2017.

Throughout Texas, more than 300,000 people were left without electricity and billions of dollars of property damage was sustained.

August 29, 2017 approximately 13,000 people had been rescued across the state while an estimated 30,000 were displaced.

Making landfall as a Category 4 hurricane, Harvey inflicted tremendous damage across Aransas County.  

Wind gusts were observed up to 132 mph (212 km/h) near Port Aransas.

In Rockport, entire blocks were leveled by the hurricane’s winds.

The city’s courthouse was severely damaged when a cargo trailer was hurled into it, coming to a stop halfway through the structure.

The gymnasium of the Rockport-Fulton High School lost multiple walls while the school itself suffered some damage.

A Fairfield Inn in the city was severely damaged.  One person died in a house fire in the city, unable to be rescued due to the extreme weather conditions.

As of August 28, an estimated 30–40 people remain unaccounted for across Aransas County, including 9 in Rockport. Nearly every structure in Port Aransas suffered damage.

By the afternoon of August 26, more than 20 in of rain had fallen in the Corpus Christi metropolitan area.

All of Victoria was left without water and most had no power.
