GRANJENO – A new disaster-ready unit is in the Rio Grande Valley. The Hidalgo County Community Service Agency (“CSA”) helps families with utility assistance. Now, the agency is on standby to help Hurricane Harvey families. CSA officials activated their special response unit when Hurricane Harvey hit the coastal areas. CSA Executive Director Jaime Longoria explained they created this due to a local storm. In 2016, straight line winds between 85 to 105 miles per hour left the city of Granjeno in pieces. A year after the storm, the damages can still be seen in the community. As the city rebuilds, the winds left homeowner Jennifer Alvarez worried for the next disaster.
