(CNN)Pastor Joel Osteen’s Houston megachurch says it’s opening its doors Tuesday to residents displaced by flooding.

 

Lakewood Church, which was founded by Osteen’s father in the 1950s, posted on social media Monday that the venue was “inaccessible due to severe flooding” following Hurricane Harvey, which has been downgraded to a tropical storm.
The message included the National Guard rescue hotline, along with a list of shelters that displaced Texans could go to.
