Tropical Storm Harvey walloped Texas over the weekend, and hit Houston especially hard. The city is now experiencing catastrophic flooding, which the National Weather Service says is unprecedented.

Amid the devastation, Texans are tweeting out heartwarming moments from the storm, saying they are prouder than ever to be Texan.

Texas, you didn't deserve this, but my goodness ya'll are making this country proud. #TexasStrong

They said that it was amazing how their state was coming together to help one another during the crisis.
