Slow-Moving Hurricane Harvey Causes Massive Destruction in Texas

Slow-Moving Hurricane Harvey Causes Massive Destruction in Texas

Further flooding over the next few days could add more considerable damage to the reeling city.

"Stay put", the National Weather Service advised.

"The Red Cross is always at the ready, so we have volunteers ready to deploy to disaster sites 24-7", Rabenstine said. Water and rain were blowing sideways, and were being whipped "into a froth", he said. She was found by neighbors about 30 yards away from the vehicle.

A flash flood emergency was in effect for parts of the Houston area. It gradually weakened over the next several hours, AP reported.

CoreLogic predicted the storm could leave about $40 billion in damages. The center of the storm was barely moving and was less than 240 km from Houston with sustained winds of 60 miles per hour.

"It just looks like a huge storm, and there's a lot of help that's needed there right now", said Barker, a former Red Cross disaster program manager, minutes before boarding her flight.

But authorities say now is not the time to relax. "[This] is going to be a long, ongoing flood event", he said. He urged drivers to stay off the road. "Bread's running out already as well", one store clerk said.

Harvey is expected to keep slowing and dumping rain through the middle of next week. "Some involve children, others with medical issues".

On Saturday morning an estimated 300,000 consumers were left without power along the Texas coast and at least 20 inches of rain had been recorded in some locations. "The threat posed by Harvey is extreme, and Texans should continue to heed the warnings of local officials and emergency personnel".

"His questions were about 'Are you doing what it takes to help people affected by this storm?'"

"Depending on the weather, we may be able to bring some ships in on Sunday", Peter Simons, interim director for the Port of Galveston, said. "My house is flooded".

At least a dozen people were injured, Mills said.

He also posted another video Friday where he is seen struggling through the powerful winds in Rockport. And then they took them to the jail where they slept in inmate beds the rest of the night till the storm passed.

"I'd been through storms as a young putz in Florida, but nothing like this", Kerber said.

Hurricane Harvey, which hit Texas on Friday night (25 August) and lashed the state with heavy rains and strong winds as a Category 4 storm, claimed its first casualty in Rockport where a man died in a house fire during the storm.

"This is going to be a major rainmaker", he told CNN Saturday. This is happening all over southern Texas as different agencies are coming together to check in on residents and assess the damage.

Officials are still anxious about potentially catastrophic rainfall that will continue for days, with more than 40 inches and flash flooding possible even well inland.

"This is a very bad scenario to be dealing with", Manzo said.
