On Saturday, August 26, Health & Human Services Secretary Price declared a public health emergency in Texas in response to Hurricane Harvey. Though the storm has weakened, rains continue and flooding is widespread. HHS continues to support response with medical equipment, personnel, and more.

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) and other Federal agencies continue to update their information resources to support the response to Hurricane Harvey and associated flooding. If you have syndicated any of our pages, updates will automatically show up on your website. If you haven’t done so yet, take a look at our bulletin from last Thursday to see how.

Below is a list of additional resources from NLM and other Federal agencies, which we hope will help communities respond to flooding and hurricane damage.
