Cold weather creates another challenge for Harvey survivors living in tents

HOUSTON – As winter starts to settle into the Houston area, those who are still feeling the wrath of Harvey's aftermath are being hit with another challenge.

The neighborhoods along River Oaks Drive in Conroe are still filled with debris from the floods. Many people who are surviving in their homes said they are struggling to getting approval for any aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency aid or insurance companies.

Isidro Estrada lost his home after Harvey. His wife and two grandchildren are forced to live in tents outside their homes as their family tries to make repairs.

"This is my residence," said Estrada, as he pointed to a blue tent.

The blue tent is one he made from tarp and string. In it is his family's dining table and outside refrigerator, both of which were donated.

"It's for Maruchan (ramen noodles) and coffee," said Estrada, laughing.

He can still find the strength to smile and laugh, though his family lost everything and is sleeping on blankets in an adjacent tent, which was also donated. With lower temperatures coming, he is nervous.

"It's cold," said Estrada. "No beds. No blankets."
