$99 for a case of water: Texas officials report price gouging post-Harvey

Thing just seem to be getting worse and worse for the victims of Harvey. 

Texas officials say they've gotten hundreds of complaints about price gouging and scams in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. One convenience store in Houston reportedly charged $20 for a gallon of gas, $8.50 for a bottle of water and $99 for a case of water.

There are also a plethora of health concerns surrounding the flood waters swallowing cities in Texas. Floodwater is often contaminated with sewage and chemicals and can hide sharp objects made of metal or glass. Sewage can cause boils or rashes on parts of the body that are submerged for extended periods of time. In addition to that, using items that have been submerged can also cause stomach problems.

But in some good news Walmart has announced that they will be donating $20 million in cash and donations to the Harvey relief efforts.
