District Attorney's Office recognized for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts
BATON ROUGE- The East Baton Rouge District Attorney's Office has recently been recognized by Harris County for their efforts in the recovery of Hurricane Harvey.
The DA's office significantly assisted Houston and its surrounding areas in the wake of the devastating flood.
Hillar C. Moore's Twitter page posted a photo of the award Monday morning in recognition of the efforts. The plaque reads, "For your dedication and support during Hurricane Harvey."
In late August, Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas and dumped nearly 1 trillion gallons of water onto Harris County within the span of four days. The storm caused damaged to nearly 120,000 structures and forced thousands of residents into shelters.
The Harris County Flood Control District organization says "Harris County has never seen a storm like Harvey."
EBR DA's Office lent a helping hand to the neighboring state, filling trucks with supplies and food for recovery.
