Academy Sports + Outdoors will be distributing free bottled water in Pasadena after a tornado hit the area Tuesday.

The giveaway will begin at noon at Academy’s Pasadena location, 4627 E. Sam Houston Parkway S., and continue as long as supplies last, the retailer announced. Customers can pick up free cases of 24-count bottled water out of an 18-wheeler parked outside the front of the store.

While much of the Houston area experienced severe weather, Pasadena and Deer Park were hit the hardest. As of Wednesday, hundreds in the area were still without power, and the Pasadena Independent School District had canceled classes to deal with damage caused by a tornado ripping through the area.
