    Donate Now to Help Texas Families Affected by Hurricane Harvey

    Texas has just experienced what may be the biggest natural disaster they have ever faced.

    Harvey’s slow movement and a resulting deluge have taken aim at Houston, Galveston Island, Corpus Christi, Beaumont-Port Arthur, parts of central Texas and many areas in between. And the danger from the torrential downpour is far from over — as we write this — and could last several more days. 

    Union members help each other in times of disaster, and unions affiliated with the Texas AFL-CIO are participating in rescue and relief efforts.

    We know from experience that union members also are extraordinarily generous in tough times. This is the toughest of times. The Texas Workers Relief Fund, a 501(c)(3) charitable fund, which is overseen by the Texas AFL-CIO, provides direct help to union families in need.

    What lies ahead is new. We have never seen a Texas tragedy on this scale. We cannot make anyone whole, but our movement can send a message of solidarity, a message that we are with working people badly harmed by Hurricane Harvey in heart, in soul and in spirit.

    Please help these families in need by donating to the Texas Workers Relief Fund!


    The FRA Acting Administrator's Declaration of Emergency Event

    Pursuant to Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) § 211.45, Federal Railroad Administration Acting Administrator Heath Hall has determined that the imminent threat of Tropical Storm Harvey with flooding rains, potential power outages, and localized flash flooding conditions predicted to occur in the Texas gulf coast region of the United States constitutes an “emergency event” as related to railroad operations. In making this determination, the Deputy Administrator notes that the National Weather Service has issued a Hurricane Warning for the Texas coast from Port Mansfield to Matagorda, a Tropical Storm Warning from north of Matagorda to High Island Texas and a Tropical Storm Warning and a Hurricane Watch from south of Port Mansfield to the Mouth of the Rio Grande. Specifically, the National Weather Service advises that Harvey is expected to produce life-threatening flooding with total rain accumulations of 10 to 15 inches and isolated maximum amounts of 25 inches over the Texas coast through next Wednesday, August 30th. During the same period, Harvey is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 3 to 9 inches along its outer radius including parts of south, central, and eastern Texas and the lower Mississippi Valley. The State of Texas declared a state of disaster for 30 counties on August 23rd in anticipation of severe flooding, storm surges and damaging winds. Therefore, the Acting Administrator has activated the Emergency Relief Docket (FRA-2017-0001) as of August 24, 2017, and the emergency relief provisions of 49 CFR § 211.45 are in effect.
