CHARLOTTE, NC (Jane McAlister Pope/CharlotteObserver) - Emergency officials say the best way to immediately help the Houston area’s flooded residents is by donating to responsible charities that are working directly with the victims.

Lowe’s, the home improvement store based in Mooresville, has responded by donating $500,000 to American Red Cross disaster relief.
