Local agencies ready to help with Hurricane Harvey relief efforts

Hurricane Harvey: What we know about the major storm about to hit the Gulf Coast

"We're really looking at a multiday rainfall disaster unfolding". In 2005, Pence, who was then a congressman from Indiana, led an effort called Operation Offset aimed at requiring deep spending cuts to pay for Hurricane Katrina relief. Ed Emmett, the Harris County judge, said although the hurricane was expected to dump lots of rain on Houston, the city wasn't expected to receive the large amounts of storm surge expected in other areas.

They also will help with clean up.

More than 300,000 people are now without power, according to Electric Reliability Council of Texas company's Twitter account.

A group of people race across the street as winds from Hurricane Harvey escalated in Corpus Christi, Texas, U.S. August 25, 2017. Fueled by warm Gulf of Mexico waters, Harvey grew rapidly, accelerating from a Category 1 early Friday morning to a Category 4 by evening.

"Sheriff Joe Arpaio was the instigator of racial profiling and made official a policy of harassment and abuse based on the color of one's skin", said Janet Murguia, president of UnidosUS, a Hispanic civil rights and advocacy group.

As it bears down on the Gulf of Mexico, Hurricane Harvey has high potential to negatively affect five southern Texas coast refineries and condensate splitter as well as crude and gasoline inventory levels in the region and beyond. According to Read, some areas may see as much as 40 inches of rainfall in a short period.

The city's police department tweeted Saturday, "Much road debris and downed power lines".

In downtown Seguin, traffic was sparse, with most businesses shuttered.

Hours before Harvey arrived, local officials told anyone ignoring an evacuation order should write their names and social security numbers on their arms to help identification. "I could feel the whole house move". He says it was not easy getting prepared. But the pardon was unusual given that Arpaio was awaiting sentencing. It killed at least 8,000 people, according to the National Weather Service.

On Friday, Abbott had urged residents between Corpus Christi and Houston "to strongly consider evacuating". Everything I had, I had to leave.

Robert Arnold, a reporter for CNN affiliate KPRC, said the station's news truck nearly tipped over from the high-speed winds.

CHRISTOPHER BOOKER: Today they learned their house in Corpus Christi had been damaged in the storm.

The agency estimated that platforms accounting for about 22 percent of oil production and 23 percent of natural gas output in the Gulf had been shut down. It gradually weakened over the next several hours, AP reported.

Harvey is the strongest storm to hit the US in 12 years and the National Weather Service warned that this was the 'start of many difficult days to come'. It was since been downgraded to a tropical storm. "There was no water on the shelves at all".

"We have not been able to completely assess damage with current winds at 90 plus", Wax told reporters.

"Our Texas communities affected by this severe hurricane continue to be in my prayers, as are the first responders and emergency personnel who are working around the clock". The president signed a federal disaster declaration for coastal counties Friday night.
