Mexico's Red Cross delivers aid to storm-ravaged Houston

Mexico's Red Cross delivers aid to storm-ravaged HoustonMexico’s Red Cross sent an envoy of volunteers to storm-devastated Houston on Wednesday, hours after Texas governor Greg Abbott said the state accepted an offer of aid from the Mexican government, including vehicles, boats, supplies and food. At least 25 people have been killed and tens of thousands driven from their homes after Harvey came ashore on Friday near Corpus Christi as the most powerful hurricane to hit Texas in more than half a century, swamping Houston with record rains and flooding. The support from Mexico’s Red Cross, a non-government agency, is separate from the official aid offer.
