Update by Nate Morris
Hurricane Harvey is likely to become one of the most devastating storms in modern history. The system has brought destruction across the coast of Texas. Two feet of rain has already fallen, and an additional two feet of rain is forecast in areas in and around the Houston metropolitan region that are currently experiencing catastrophic flooding.
The people of Texas are coming together to aid one another in this time of crisis, and The Black Wall Street Times is calling on our community to join that effort.
Our national government is headed by unsteady and untested leadership, so we must stand in the gap for our neighbors to the South. Please consider joining the relief effort through one of the following ways:
Donating to one of the following organizations assisting storm victims:
- The American Red Cross (be sure to designate your gift to “Hurricane Harvey” relief)
- Convoy of Hope (www.convoyofhope.org)
- The Salvation Army (be sure to designate your gift to the Dallas, TX state branch)
- Feeding Texas
- Direct Relief
- Team Rubicon
- Giving blood at a local Red Cross donation event

Tulsa, let’s be a source of hope to our friends who are experiencing tragedy in this time.
The Oklahoma Standard is in full effect.
