The whole southern US state of Texas is recovering from the biggest natural catastrophe to ever happen to it in a period of 12 years; Hurricane Harvey. Kicking off on August 25, 2017, 51 fatalities have been reported and over 300,000 people were left without electricity. It also caused literally billions of dollars in damage; the chaos it caused is expected to cost the government between $70 and $190 billion.
