Energy Conference: Decarbonization - A Business Perspective REGISTER

Texas will need all of the help it can get to recover from Hurricane Harvey. The online news company Vox has posted a long list of organizations that will be contributing to the disaster response.

Harvey made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane Friday night and has lingered  for days as a tropical storm, inundating southeastern Texas over the weekend with unprecedented rainfall. New Jersey has sent a special task force of police, fire and emergency personnel to the Houston suburb of Katy to help with the rescue and relief efforts.

Bloomberg News reports that Harvey’s recovery costs could reach “$30 billion when the impact of relentless flooding on the labor force, power grid, transportation and other elements that support the region’s energy sector” is factored in.
