Hurricane Harvey whipped and hammered some of the most populous cities in Texas with heavy rain and winds as fast as 130 mph. It's stranded thousands of Gulf Coast residents, with several of them waiting on their roofs for rescue. The picture The New York Times paints is a harrowing one: "The Houston region now looks like an inland sea dotted by islands, with floodwaters inundating roads, vehicles, and even bridges and buildings."
Anheuser-Busch has a history of throwing support behind relief efforts, and it has approximately three facilities and 1,100 employees in the Houston area alone. They're all safe, according to the brewing company.
In a statement on Monday, Bill Bradley, Anheuser-Busch’s Vice President for Community Affairs, emphasized that "safety of our colleagues is paramount," and expressed his support for the company's workers in Houston, as well as the relief effort.
