Boston Mayor Marty Walsh tweeted, "May everyone down in #Houston & the gulf stay safe, and continue looking out for one other. Sending thoughts & prayers from #Boston. #Harvey."

"Please keep the people of Texas and Louisiana, and the many volunteers including #MassTaskforce1, in your thoughts & prayers," Governor Charlie Baker added.

The National Weather Service based in Boston tweeted, "If you have family/friends across southeast TX that need help, please pass this important information on to them," along with a link to the search and rescue crews in Houston.
