Pink isn’t the only celebrity to donate to the fund.
As CI readers know, the storm hit on the 25th of August, Friday, which destroyed Houston and many other cities.
At least 44 people have been confirmed dead as of Saturday, September 2nd.
Texas Governor, Greb Abbott, claimed the bill for the rebuilding of the city after the Hurricane is astronomical.
The politician stated the damage was worse than Hurricane Katrina which devastated New Orleans in 2005.
Meanwhile, the head of the US government’s disaster management team has warned the flood has cost the state billions of dollars, and they shouldn’t merely rely on the Federal agency to foot the expensive bill. In fact, the governor Texas warned the Federal government that the bill could be around $180 billion for the damage. At the moment, around 43,000 individuals are being housed in shelters around the state.
