Commiserations to US Hurricane Victims

Iran commiserated with the storm-stricken Americans after Hurricane Harvey left a trail of massive destruction in Texas and claimed over 40 lives. On Thursday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi expressed regret over the deaths and the multibillion-dollar damage caused by the monster storm, expressing sympathy with the bereaved families of the victims and those affected, Tasnim News Agency reported. The Category 4 hurricane has killed at least 44 people in Texas, officials said on Thursday, and forced 32,000 people into shelters since it came ashore last Friday near Rockport on the Gulf of Mexico coast, triggering unprecedented flooding. It was the most powerful hurricane to hit Texas in half a century. Homeland Security adviser, Tom Bossert, told a White House briefing Thursday that “there are still people up to their waists in water.” Bossert estimated that 100,000 homes had been affected by flooding. In the most recent figures, the Texas Department of Public Safety said 48,700 homes sustained flood damage, including 17,000 with major damage, while 1,000 were destroyed.
