“We will stay with you” VP Pence promises relief to Harvey victims

ROCKPORT, Texas (WSAV) – Victims of Hurricane Harvey sang ‘God Bless America outside a damaged Texas church today as Vice President Mike Pence assured survivors that they are not alone.

“When one hurts, we all hurt,” Pence said. “President Trump sent us here to tell you we are with you, the American people are with you.”

The Vice President and Mrs. Pence prayed with dozens of survivors in Rockport, where the storm first made landfall.

The heads of several agencies also tagged along to survey the storm’s damage, which could remain for years to come.

“It’s a long way to go. It’s not months, but it’s years,” says Pence. “The challenges will be great.”

But after a week of pain and suffering, the Vice President promises long term relief is on the way.

“We will stay with you until Rockport and all of Southeast Texas come back.
