Sandra Bullock, Kevin Hart Lead Massive Donations — Hurricane Harvey

Houston Texans' JJ Watt Raises More than $5 Million for Storm Relief: 'Difficult Times' Show the 'Best in Humanity'

A rabbit is carried to a rescue boat after it was found floating in floodwater in Houston, Texas. What a difference a day made - some places for the better, some for the worse. "Just like Superstorm Sandy, Arctic warming likely played an important role in making Hurricane Harvey such an extreme killer storm".

As the water receded, Houston's fire department said it would begin a block-by-block search on Thursday of thousands of flooded homes. "The relationship between climate change and the frequency of hurricanes and tropical cyclones is not clear, there's still a lot of research going on into that", she said. But that doesn't always happen, and people are inevitably going to try to pass Harvey-damaged cars off as something else. Visit your neighborhood Kroger and make a monetary donation to the American Red Cross at Kroger's check-out registers.

With neighbouring Louisiana squarely in its path, Harvey made landfall again yesterday. Standing water left after the flood recedes will leave an ideal breading ground for mosquitoes which can spread Zika virus.

In Texas, emergency crews were still struggling to reach hundreds of stranded people in a massive round-the-clock rescue operation - but the National Weather Service tweeted that weather conditions there were to finally improve.

The Texans have been gone from Houston since last Wednesday morning.

Estimate on the overall economic cost of Hurricane Harvey, as determined by Moody's Analytics and cited by Reuters.

In June, President Trump pulled the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement to worldwide condemnation.

Hurricanes come in numbers - Categories 1 through 5 - as part of the Saffir-Simpson scale of hurricane strength. "So it incorporates the size of the storm and how fast it's moving forward". And he added later that "Texas can handle anything".

Harvey's movements up the coast also gave Houston respite from the heavy rain, even as the storm's true toll remained unknown.

Louisiana is home to the St. James oil trading hub, which has a refining capacity of 2.5 million bpd.

After his quick trip to Texas, Trump is headed to Missouri to discuss tax cuts and tax reform. The move releases emergency government funding and other assistance. The storm is expected to continue dumping huge amounts of rain in the coming days over already flood-hit areas.
