All around the mortgage industry, primary and secondary lenders are coming to the aid of borrowers impacted by the severe devastation from Hurricane Harvey.

Images of people wading and boating through the flooded streets of Houston — the nation’s fourth-largest city — have dominated the news cycle since Harvey made landfall on Friday as a Category 4 hurricane.

So far, death toll estimates are as high as 15 people as a result of the hurricane. Rainfall from Harvey, which has stalled over the Houston area, can be measured in feet. The Los Angeles Times reports that around 30,000 people are in shelters.
