Ontario sending aid to flood victims in Texas

The Ontario government is stepping up to help flood victims in Texas following hurricane Harvey.

The storm left vast swaths of Texas and parts of Louisiana flooded and forced tens of thousands of people from their homes.

In response to a request from the US Federal Emergency Management Agency, Ontario is sending Texas more than 14-thousand bottles of baby formula, 200 cribs with mattresses and linens, and other items.

The supplies are being sent to CFB Trenton, where a military transport plane will deliver them to the disaster area tomorrow morning.

An Ontario government spokesman says the cost of the aid will be about 100-thousand dollars.
