While the worst of Hurricane Harvey may be over, there are still many precautions and safety measures that Texans, especially parents need to take as they return to their homes.
For one thing, there’s many environmental concerns. Chemical plants and other industrial sites released toxins during the widespread flooding. A lot of debris and other hazardous items will be present from the floodwater that rushed through. Safe drinking water is also a concern.
Before kids can return to school, it needs to be safe and cleaned up. As children are naturally curious, parents and other caretakers should keep a close eye on their kids to ensure their kids also remain safe although the hurricane has passed.
