IRVING, US: ExxonMobil Corporation (XOM) said that it is allocating $500,000 for contributions to regional Red Cross organizations along the US Gulf Coast to assist with relief efforts in communities expected to be impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

ExxonMobil has also made provisions to ensure that emergency responders and other essential service providers requesting fuel are given priority.

The Red Cross is mobilizing relief workers to support response efforts, and has pre-positioned shelter and relief supplies in certain areas.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the residents of Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast communities currently in the path of Hurricane Harvey. We are monitoring the storm and working with the Red Cross to determine where best we can direct these resources to assist with preparation and relief efforts in the Gulf region. We hope our contributions will help provide comfort to our friends and neighbours in areas impacted by the storm," said Darren Woods, ExxonMobil chairman and CEO.
