Schoeneck says the best way for Minnesotans to help out is to text the word "Harvey" to "90999". These numbers are expected to grow and dozens of additional shelters could open. Trailers full of shelter supplies, including cots and blankets to support thousands of people, are in Texas.

While people often want to donate items, Farmer said that isn't as helpful as money.
