Hurricane Harvey officially tied with Hurricane Katrina as the most destructive hurricane on record. The monstrous hurricane destroyed much of Texas, leaving thousands of people without homes and power. Many cities were also flooded, and coastal towns were decimated by the gigantic storm surges produced by the hurricane. Hurricane Harvey’s destruction reached more than $100 billion, and people have started claiming their insurance.
Stream Energy, which is a Dallas-based energy provider, is one of the first companies to arrive at the evacuation centers housing the survivors who fled their homes that are either destroyed by huge waves or damaged by floods. Stream Energy provided food, clothing, water, and hygienic kits to those who survived, and they also turned over a certain amount to the American Red Cross to be used for buying additional supplies for the survivors. Stream Energy has its own philanthropic department, called the Stream Energy Cares, and they mobilized their rescue teams to locate people who are in need of help.
Stream Energy Cares has been providing relief efforts to thousands of people, and many were delighted that they are the first ones to give assistance to those who are in need. The company is known for helping people who are having issues with their energy sources, and the reason why they decided to reach out other states is that they wanted to give an affordable choice for those who are complaining about their high energy rates. As of 2018, the company started to expand in Delaware, where they were welcomed by the locals.
The energy company stated that they will keep on helping those who were affected by the disaster, and they will also partner with the government to address some of the issues that the survivors are facing. Many homes were out of power and destroyed after Hurricane Harvey unleashed its power, and the company promised that they will be looking into the electrical posts that tumbled after resisting the strong winds from the hurricane. They will also release a budget that will be used to rebuild homes for those who were affected by the destructive force of nature.
