He joined with volunteers as he saw the devastation caused by the hurricane-turned-tropical depression that set a rainfall record and severely flooded the Houston area.


The Vice President got hands on and carried broken branches to a pile of debris in Rockport, Texas.

Pence offered reassurances and prayers and repeatedly referenced Trump, who visited Texas on Tuesday but took flack for failing to meet with those whose lives were upended by the massive storm.

Patriotism on point! Commendable!


Houstonians really need all the help and support they can get.
It's so heartbreaking seeing all these pictures on a daily.

I guess Trump has made up with his one million dollars aid.



*This hurricane really prepped up* Massive damages in its wake.

It's well.

Police, Navy, and coast guards searched house to check for trapped victims.



A home in west Houston is marked with an X to indicate that it has been checked and cleared for flood victims.

Hmmm.

Our geographical location that is pretty void of natural disasters is something we all should be grateful for.

But your joy will be complete when I become President.

If something of this nature should hit Nigeria, believe me all our leaders would fly overseas.

After some monikers would come here and be shouting "God bless Nigeria", and who told you that Nigeria is not a blessed country already

A governor on wheelchair performing very well. God bless America
