As Tropical Storm Harvey continued to batter Houston and other parts of southeast Texas with record amounts of rain Sunday, and with the catastrophic flooding in the region expected to worsen in the coming days, Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt shared a message of support.

“I’m sitting here watching the news, checking the Internet and seeing everything that’s going on with Hurricane Harvey and the damage it’s causing back home,” Watt said in a video message to his 3.89 million followers on Twitter and 2.7 million followers on Instagram. “It’s very difficult. It’s very difficult, not only because we have family and friends back there — some guys have young kids, some guys have wives and families — but that’s our city. It’s very tough to watch our city get hit by such a bad storm and not be there to help, not be able to help with the recovery, not be able to help with the process.”
