Section 23 Films confirmed with ANN that its Houston-based offices have not been affected by Hurricane Harvey. However, some of the staff members have homes that have been damaged or worse.

Section 23's Sentai Filmworks label announced on Tuesday that this Wednesday's episode of Sagrada Reset will be delayed due to the hurricane.

Funimation Entertainment is also based in Texas, but north of Dallas and outside the area heavily impacted by the storm. The company is donating US$10,000 to relief efforts and is matching up to US$25,000 in donations to relief organizations.

The category 4 hurricane made landfall in southeastern Texas late Friday evening. The storm has led to severe flooding and damage in some areas, including Houston, and has led to at least six deaths.

Update: Sentai Filmworks confirmed that its staff and their families are safe. As a result of the hurricane, the company will not attend San Japan as planned.

Section 23 Films further confirmed with ANN that it is still fulfilling orders, as its warehouse is not located in Houston. Many staff members are working from home.
