Help is on the way from the University of Houston and Houstonians to North Carolina after Hurricane Florence devastated much of the state.  Today UH Cougar nation and Houstonians started with donations of essential supplies after remembering what it was like for them after Hurricane Harvey last year.  The Hurricane Florence Supply drive ended at 6 p.m. Monday at TDECU Stadium at the University of Houston.

All donated supplies will be delivered to North Carolina as soon as North Carolina  road and weather conditions improve, when the truck is filled and when the UH Athletics department gets the word to leave for the long drive to North Carolina.
