Fundraiser meant for Jeff Lindner will now go to Harvey victims

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A fund originally meant to send meteorologist Jeff Lindner on a vacation will soon be helping those most affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Lindner is taking the more than $21,000 raised by others and turning it into a new fundraising effort for flood victims.

Every penny raised will go to assist families with home repairs and other expenses.
