We've learned that one of our own was hit close to home: Dana Clark, daughter of Dane Altman in our Dallas office, as well as her husband and two of Dane's grandchildren. She and her family live just east of Houston in Beaumont, TX, which received 26 inches of rain in 24 hours before Harvey even made landfall. Since Friday, they have been hit with nearly 50 inches. Around 1am this morning, flash flood waters began entering and rising in their home.
As we've all heard, evacuation requests in the area are backlogged, with millions of people needing help. Fortunately, after calling around all morning, Dana and her family were able to be rescued and are now safe. However, they have suffered extensive damages and do not have flood insurance.
Please join us to show support for Dana as a member of our extended JPS family during this difficult time. All funds will be routed directly to Dana from GoFundMe.
