Kevin Hart is calling out his celebrity friends to donate thousands of dollars to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Singer Carl Thomas and his dogs got caught up in the storm and had to be rescued. Meanwhile, Beyonce sends her prayers to the people in her hometown. Get it all inside…

Prayers up for Houston!

Over the weekend, tropical storm Harvey (Category 4 hurricane) touched down in Houston and has wreaked havoc all over the city. It's the hardest hitting hurricane that has hit the U.S. in a decade. Floodwaters have inundated roads vehicles, and even bridges and buildings, causing thousands of people to be rescued, many waiting for help from their rooftops.

And the rain still hasn’t stopped.

According to the National Weather Service, more than 30 inches of rain has fallen on parts of the Houston area since the storm kicked off late Thursday. At least five people have reportedly died and more than a dozen people are injured due to the storm.

Now, Houston locals need help!

Funnyman Kevin Hart is putting his money where his mouth is and he’s donating $25,000 to help the hurricane victims. Not only that, he’s challenging some of his celebrity friends -- including Beyonce, Jay Z, and Chris Rock -- to do the same.

Peep his #HurricaneHarveyReliefChallenge:
