Houston native Beyonce planning to aid those hit by Harvey

Beyonce has said she is working with her charity to assist those in her home town affected by Storm Harvey.

The Houston native said in a statement to the Houston Chronicle that "my heart goes out to my home town, Houston, and I remain in constant prayer for those affected".

Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and the original members of Destiny's Child who left the group, LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson, formed the band as teenagers in Houston.

Harvey made landfall four days ago as the fiercest hurricane to hit the US in 13 years.

Beyonce said she is praying "for the rescuers who have been so brave and determined".

The singer said she is working closely with her organisation BeyGOOD and her pastor to find ways to help those affected.
