Exactly 1 year ago today, I saw @ChristieStClair working to help #HurricaneHarvey victims and asked how I could help. We had no idea what we were in for.

I remember going through the HarveyRescue database updating rescue data, and seeing all the status updates. "Trapped in attic. No axe to cut through to roof." "Water levels rising; 2 people drowned already." Each one represented real people #HarveyVolunteer #RememberingHarvey 1/7
2/7 I clearly remember getting phone calls from terrified people who were trapped in their flooded homes, who didn't know if they were going to live or die. They'd heard of HarveyRescue, and were asking to be added to our rescue database. #HarveyVolunteer #RememberingHarvey 2/7
They kept trying to get through to 911 & other official channels, but they couldn't get through. Even though HarveyRescue was only volunteers, there were hundreds of us, and it seemed to mean so much to them that they could talk to someone #HarveyVolunteer #RememberingHarvey 3/7
