Airlines and hotels step up to help travelers and Hurricane Harvey victims

Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas coast over the weekend, causing widespread flooding and devastation in the region.

Due to flooding and severe weather, flights in and out of Houston’s William P Hobby (HOU) and Bush International (IAH) airports have been grounded until further notice.

Southwest (LUV) passengers can change their reservations for flights into and out of Austin, Corpus Christi, Houston, Harlingen and San Antonio for free.

To help raise money for recovering efforts, United will provide up to 3 million bonus miles to MileagePlus members who donate to hurricane relief organizations.

As people continue to evacuate, six U-Haul companies in Texas will provide free U-Box containers, which offer dry storage and can be locked for security.
