The humanitarian effort underway after Hurricane Harvey is showing Americans at their best. Communities across Texas have been battered by storm, with record-setting floods damaging or destroying more than 300,000 homes in the southeast part of the state. In Houston, home to 2.3 million people, the challenges of recovery are proving to be quite unique.

Energy companies have set up stations for employees to pick up emergency supplies, they’ve sent work crews to rip out drywall from flooded homes, and they’ve even provided helicopters to deliver water to families when the city of Beaumont’s water service failed.

The safety, health and protection of people, the environment and communities are the top priorities for the natural gas and oil industry.

Modern hydraulic fracturing combined with horizontal drilling is the technological engine behind surging U.S. oil and natural gas output which, combined with smart, effective regulation has transformed the United States from a passive consumer on the world energy stage to a leader in only a decade’s time.

Late last year America’s Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA) and the American Petroleum Institute (API) combined forces to highlight the role natural gas can play to ensure America’s energy security, create jobs, and provide the abundant and affordable energy consumers need all while providing environmental benefits.

Indy Star: Kalese Hoggard is spending part of her spring break back in the classroom, but she's not learning from books. She's working with a team of students to build rockets and robots at Walker Career Center. It's fun, she said, but there's a more important reason: "Women engineers — we need more of them. And I'm going to be one. Or a neurologist," she said. Kalese is among 20 eighth-grade girls from Stonybrook, Raymond Park and Creston middle schools in Warren Township who are participating in Gateway Academy STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) Camp.
