Texas Gov. Greg Abbott stressed Texan resilience during a Harvey press briefing



Texas Gov. Greg Abbott discussed Harvey relief efforts at a press briefing on Friday. He told reporters that all 50 states have offered to provide support to Texas residents who were affected by the storm.

"The most incredible thing we observed was not the rubble, but the resilience," Abbott said.

The Texas governor urged Texans to call a help center if they have been affected by the storm.

"If you are Texan that has been dislocated by the flooding or Hurricane Harvey, please contact disasterassistance.com," he said.

FEMA tweeted out the website for Texans to receive assistance Aug. 28.

Abbott says that more than 44,000 people have signed up for FEMA aid, and cautioned that the floods might affect more areas before the crisis ends.
