After an elderly man was found trapped in an SUV in Houston, strangers formed a human chain to help him. It is just one of the many stories of acts of kindness emerging among the chaos created by Tropical Storm Harvey.

The image of the chain has since gone viral. Stephanie Edward Mata witnessed the inspiring event. She told Mashable, "The people had no rope to get him out so they made a chain holding each other. They pulled the door open and one gentleman got ahold of him as they held on until they got him safe."

People have responded to the act of humanity with messages of hope.

Tropical Storm Harvey has dumped 19 trillion gallons of rain on Texas, devastating parts of the state.
