Since Hurricane Harvey, the largest hurricane to hit Texas in more than 50 years, miraculously dodged San Antonio, the city became home base for major hurricane relief efforts along the Gulf Coast and in Houston. Nearly 1,000 hurricane evacuees were taken to shelters in San Antonio, many without a home to return to, and the city sent 30 police officers and 19 vehicles to Houston to help with flooding rescue. Local chefs flocked to Rockport to provide hot meals to newly homeless residents and dozens of restaurants and music venues hosted fundraisers to support Harvey victims.
