Flood-prone Houston at the mercy of Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey roars toward Texas coast, should be 115-mph storm at landfall

It happened around 9 p.m. CST Saturday in southwest Houston. In Houston, police went door-to-door in two flooded apartment complexes helping residents to safety.

The biggest impact would be at the coast in areas like Virginia Beach in terms of rough surf and strong rip currents. They said members were expected to leave on Sunday. "But, it's Texas, we'll get through it". "If u can shelter in place do so". People also can make a contribution online through the Lowe's American Red Cross Online Donation Site.

A dozen recreational vehicles were flipped over on a sales lot, one blown into the middle of the street.

The NHC warned: "Rainfall of this magnitude will cause catastrophic and life-threatening flooding".

Folks on the coast might want to think about urging President Trump to take this a little more seriously.

"Flooding is the biggest concern", he said.

Tornado warnings were in effect in several parts of the area. Smith happened to see Harris County sheriff's deputies coming on Beltway 8 and flagged them down to report the trapped truck driver. This system will not be gigantic in size, so there will be a sharp cutoff of the western edge of the rain.

The National Weather Service said 12 tornadoes had been reported across the region.

"Katrina was the exception", Kloza said, referring to the 2005 storm that badly damaged Gulf Coast operations. That would be the highest amount ever recorded in Texas. All told, the U.S. reported more than $21 billion in damage, as well as five deaths.

Long said 5,000 federal employees are already in Texas responding to the developing disaster.

Harvey's torrential rains pummelled the south-central US state of Texas after the storm made landfall as a category 4 hurricane late Friday, about 50km north-east of Corpus Christi, the National Hurricane Center said. "We are so grateful for the generous support of Lowe's to American Red Cross Disaster Relief, which enables us to prepare for, respond to and help people recover from disasters big and small".

"Sheetrock and glass were breaking", Nino said. There were similar scenes in Houston and Corpus Christi.

"I don't need to tell anyone this is a very, very serious and unprecedented storm", Turner told a news conference. The building was later evacuated. He urged drivers to stay off flooded roads to avoid adding to the number of those stranded.

Calling the destruction of Hurricane Harvey a "landmark event," Brock Long, the administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), is planning recovery efforts not in months, but "years". "We're setting up and gearing up for the next couple years". Worse than (Tropical Storm) Allison.

The National Hurricane Center says Harvey is likely to weaken to a tropical depression by Sunday.

A fleet of helicopters, airboats and high-water vehicles confronted flooding so widespread that authorities had trouble pinpointing the worst areas.

President Trump tweeted Sunday, "Great coordination between agencies at all levels of government". Some people are using attics and the second floor to escape the rising flood waters.

"The real test will be tonight when energy markets open for electronic trading and we see in numbers how bad markets believe the situation is", Patrick DeHaan, a senior petroleum analyst at GasBuddy, said Sunday.
