Life After Harvey: Supporting a New Normal
During the storm, the days were filled with watching the news, responding to concerned family and friends, and watching the floodwaters rise to record levels. A famous quote from Fred Rogers tends to pop up during difficult times. “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’” True to this quote, before the rain had even stopped, the UH community sprang into action to help our fellow Cougars and Houstonians. The ride out team supported approximately 2,000 students who stayed on campus, ultimately helping some students evacuate one residence hall. The University’s communication team sent daily messages with updates, resources, and helpful information. The UH campus was closed for a full week.
