And Montgomery County's urban search and rescue team was preparing to leave for Texas Sunday evening.

Hurricane Harvey's effects on the Texas coast are likely to be long-lasting and varied.

One of the volunteers, Lynda Joly, said their main job will be feeding people in communities hit hard, but their role will go beyond giving food and water.

"Many have not been called yet, but are on standby, along with three emergency response vehicles", she said.

More than 125 Red Cross emergency response vehicles, including the three from SC, also have been activated. "I know that we will support the impacted individuals".

The Red Cross uses the vehicles to feed residents in the disaster area and to distribute supplies.

Airbnb has launched a site for people looking for a place to stay and for those who can offer shelter.

The Red Cross has 20 shelters already set up in Texas, but because of the continued rain and flooding they are set to expand that number to 50 shelters, according to Benjamin.

Houston-area officials said they already performed more than 1,000 water rescues and almost 1,000 more were in queue early Sunday as torrential rain from Harvey in the city and across southeast Texas.

Brown said another volunteer is on their way to Texas and the chapter expects to send more volunteers as needed.

Other organizations that are accepting donations for disaster relief include the Texas Diaper Bank, Discoll Children's Hospital in Corpus Christi and the Salvation Army.

"At this point we're using up enormous sums of money in order to provide all of the assistance that we do provide".
