Strangers Throw Birthday Party for Boy Displaced by Harvey, Complete With a Cake
Little Anthony was celebrating his birthday in a Houston shelter.
A little boy who was forced to move to a shelter after Hurricane Harvey struck still got to celebrate his birthday thanks to the kindness of strangers.
The youngster, named Anthony, marked the day with cake and presents at a shelter in Deer Park, Texas, on Tuesday.
Other children staying at the shelter were also invited to the celebration, where everyone sang "Happy Birthday," KTRK reported.
The moment of joy comes amid uncertainty for so many families in Texas.
KTRK invited its viewers to post photos of missing people on its website. As of Thursday afternoon, 64 images had been posted. The gallery can be viewed here.
Meanwhile, dramatic footage of floods and rescues continues to emerge from the state.
One video shows a 93-year-old woman being rescued by a helicopter. Her son-in-law only managed to save her Bible from her destroyed home.
Border patrol agents, who are helping with the rescues, saved a woman found clinging to a utility pole.
Further footage shows disorientated animals roaming neighborhoods across Houston. Stray cattle and horses wandered along Interstate 10, and even a wild hog was seen running through a waterlogged neighborhood.
"If we're in the area and we've evacuated all the people and we see an animal we can get out...we're sure going to try our best," said one rescuer, who was seen taking a stranded deer to safety.
