Hurricane Harvey continues to devastate Texas, with torrential rain and catastrophic flooding predicted to last several more days. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has said that recovery from the storm will take 'a couple of years.'
As Harvey continues through the Texas coast, several celebrities have addressed the victims. During a heartfelt moment at MTV's Video Music Awards, Katy Perry urged viewers to donate to the Red Cross. "We're praying for your safety in the days to come and stay with you as you rebuild, because we're all in this together," said Perry.
Here's a sample of what we've seen:
