Relief comes slowly for coastal towns recovering from Harvey

Ed Ziegler, owner of Moby Dick’s restaurant, surveys the damages to his property after Hurricane Harvey made landfall, Wednesday in Port Aransas, Texas. “I made a deal with the Lord that if I survived I’d give him 100 percent. Now I’m hoping he’ll settle for 10,” he said, using humor to cope with the destruction around him.
The messages “Make Rockport Great Again” and “Down Not Out” are written at a destroyed home Saturday in Rockport, Texas. Rockport and Port Aransas bore the brunt of one of the strongest hurricanes to hit the United States.
Beleaguered residents queue for food at a municipal building Thursday in Seadrift, Texas, while waiting on basic services to be restored. Hurricane Harvey hit the area six days earlier, knocking out power to the community. Local townspeople directed a response that led to churches in the town preparing meals for about a quarter of the town.
Bob Campbell works Saturday to restore his home following Hurricane Harvey making landfall as he dog, Bella, lies on the air mattress where he is sleeping until he can return to his home in Port Aransas, Texas.
