FOX19 NOW partnered with the American Red Cross and Cincinnati Bell to help raise relief funds for the victims impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

The Tri-State was able to raise $119,000 by 11 p.m. Tuesday.

Funds will go toward clean up efforts from the storms that left at least 14 dead in Houston and the broader southeastern Texas region.

Harvey made landfall in Texas late Friday as a Category 4 hurricane and has lingered just off the coast, dropping heavy rain as a tropical storm.

The storm has unloaded over 50 inches of rain east of Houston, the greatest amount ever recorded in the Lower 48 states from a single storm. 

The National Hurricane Center says life-threatening flooding continues for parts of Texas.
