Southeast Texas is reeling from hurricane and tropical storm Harvey, which made landfall in Texas on Aug. 25, and dumped as much as 50 inches of rain in some areas. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has said that this is unlike anything it has seen before and preliminary FEMA estimates indicate as many as 67,000 homes in Texas may be damaged.
The Minnesota Power Foundation and Al Hodnik, ALLETE chairman, president and CEO, are encouraging ALLETE employees to contribute $10 or more to the Red Cross for Hurricane Harvey relief. For every employee who donates, the MP Foundation will give $10 to the relief fund. Employees can make their donations through Friday, Sept. 8.
