The city of McAllen is encouraging businesses, organizations, individuals to bring crates of water to send them over to Monterrey. The city is facing a severe water shortage that has left several homes without water since March.

“They depend on us, we depend on them,” McAllen Mayor Javier Villalobos said. “We've known for actually a few weeks that they need help, and maybe we should've acted almost sooner, but we're acting now. We're hoping that the rest of the community can start acting with us."
