Lines are stretching out the door for the grocery stores that have started to reopen in Texas as the remnants of Hurricane Harvey continue to soak the region.
The hurricane dumped multiple feet of rain on the area over the weekend. The flooding could continue during the week as Harvey stalls over Texas. Some stores that closed before the storm have started to reopen, and people are lining up to stock up on supplies.
People on Twitter reported hours-long lines.
H-E-B, a popular Texas chain, has reopened 62 of 93 stores in Houston and 23 of 30 stores in the Gulf Coast region, according to a company rep. Stores opened Monday at 10 a.m., ET, and will remain open until 4 p.m., unless individual store managers decide to close early to allow employees to safely drive home, the spokeswoman said.
H-E-B encourages people to check the list of store closures on its website.
The retailer has dispatched its disaster response units to deliver food, water, ice, dry goods and medicine in Victoria, Texas. The units include a pharmacy and business unit so people can fill prescriptions, cash checks, pay bills and access an ATM.
H-E-B has also set up two mobile kitchens in Victoria to serve hot meals to first responders and storm victims. The company plans to move one mobile kitchen to Houston, but many roadways on the route are currently flooded.
"Our company was founded here in Texas, so our roots run deep and our commitments to Texans is great," the spokeswoman said.
Wal-Mart and Sam's Club have also opened some of its stores in the area. The retailers opened the stores to serve the community as long as it's safe to do so in the impacted areas, a spokeswoman said in an email.
Wal-Mart and Sam's Club are updating the status of stores in the region on its website.
"We will reopen locations as quickly as possible when it is safe to do so," the company said in a statement on its website. "As always, we evaluate our store locations and teams to strike the right balance of providing for the community and staying safe for our team members."
