Hurricane Harvey makes second landfall hitting Louisiana

Wilford Martinez Richard Wagner

But low-lying New Orleans was still girding for the storm, which made landfall a day after the 12-year anniversary of Katrina, which ravaged the vulnerable city which is famous for its jazz and cuisine.

Rescue efforts continue to focus on residents stranded by the floodwaters in and around the Houston area, as Mayor Sylvester Turner did not order evacuations prior to the storms (reactions are mixed as to whether that was a good idea-130 people died in the evacuations during 2005's Hurricane Rita).

As of Monday, there have been as a result of Hurricane Harvey. He has also said his donation will not be going to Red Cross but somewhere else so it goes straight to the people who are affected. "It's going to pick up the pace and get out of here".

By using organizations like GiveWell, Charity Navigator, Charity Watch, or the Better Business Bureau, you can make sure you know your money is being used to help.

The president first landed in Corpus Christi, Texas and then headed to a fire house in the area to meet with Texas Governor Greg Abbott and FEMA officials. "Our priority is protecting and sheltering our fellow Texans". A tropical storm warning was in effect for much of the Louisiana coast.

As of Tuesday morning, nearly 50,000 homes had suffered flood damage, Texas officials said, and the tally is certain to rise. Because of the landscape and Texas-style sprawl, Houston is about as large as all of New Jersey - which is about the size of Southern Minnesota.

Following this picture, Trump supporters rushed to the social media platform to defend the first lady.

The National Weather Service said the storm has set a rainfall record for tropical cyclones in Texas.

It is projected to weaken as it moves inland to the north-east, the National Hurricane Centre said. In the same spirit as the Icebucket Challenge, he pledged to donate $25,000, then tagged other celebrities and encouraged them to donate and tag others as well. Aerial footage is one way to document the wreckage.

Harvey made a second landfall Wednesday near Cameron, La. At least 4.2 million bpd of refining capacity was offline, or more than 22 percent of total U.S. capacity, based on company reports and Reuters estimates.

Paul says the heaviest rain has exited the area and we're only getting light drizzle in some areas.
