Looking back at the flooding across the Houston area, and how you all stepped up to help your neighbors in need.



The move allows residents who were hit hard by the flooding to register with FEMA for help.

"Montgomery and San Jacinto counties officials, along with local non-profits, have done a terrific job in responding to the needs of our neighbors during the recent flooding," U.S. Rep. Kevin Brady said in a prepared statement. "Having these counties added to the federal disaster declaration for Individual Assistance is another important step in providing much needed resources to the families and businesses who were impacted by the storms. I strongly urge residents or business owners who were impacted by the flooding to register with FEMA for help."

To register for help, call 800-621-3362 or visit www.disasterassistance.gov.
