ROCKPORT, Texas -- Essential items are available for people needing them in the Rockport area.

KVUE reporter Jason Puckett came across Texas military services distributing water and meals ready-to-eat Monday, Aug. 28, at a parking lot at the H-E-B store on Rath Street.

It will remain open until no longer needed.

The Rockport area was severely damaged as Hurricane Harvey came ashore late last week with wind gusts in excess of 125 mph.
