NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Still recovering from 2017’s Hurricane Harvey, the city of Houston is helping neighboring Louisiana as Tropical Storm Barry looms. Mayor Sylvester Turner’s office on Friday announced a Houston Relief Hub and a call for donations ranging from diapers to batteries to bottled water. The relief items will be delivered directly to New Orleans. Harvey made landfall in South Texas in August 2017, then dumped nearly 50 inches of rain on parts of flood-prone Houston. Houston took in about 150,000 evacuees after Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana in 2005.
