Tropical storms, flooding wreak havoc around the world

Our hearts are heavy as we witness the devastation from Hurricane Harvey in Southeast Texas and Louisiana and as Hurricane Irma continues its path through the Atlantic as a Category 5 hurricane.

Our prayers go out to people affected by the flooding in Texas, and we also covet the prayers and support of our partners as we walk alongside families on the road to recovery — a journey that has only just begun.

But this summer has been a particularly hard season for flooding around the world, not just in the United States. As World Vision responds to the critical needs of flood-affected families in the U.S., we also continue to respond and pray for those impacted in Bangladesh, India, Sierra Leone, Nepal, and China.

Journey with us in photos as we look at how heavy rains, monsoons, tropical storms, and flash floods have impacted people around the world.
