Death Toll From Harvey Climbs as Storm Leaves Texas and Inundates Louisiana

Some parts of southeastern Texas are moving toward recovery while others like the west side of Houston remain underwater

Harvey's fatality count climbed dramatically on Wednesday according to local officials, with at least 38 deaths confirmed and suspected to be caused by the tropical storm as of writing.

Clear skies in Houston on Wednesday brought relief to the energy hub and fourth-largest US city after five days of catastrophic downpours with Houston airports beginning limited services.

The fire department in Houston began searching thousands of flooded homes to ensure "no people were left behind".

"Every single time we hit one of these landmarks I'm amazed", Watt said in a video posted to Twitter.

The Houston Texans defensive end has been raising money to help victims of Hurricane Harvey and on Thursday he surpassed his latest goal of $10 million. Facilities have to file regulatory notices when floodwaters force them to shut down, a process that could result in releases of chemicals beyond what the law normally allows.

Vice President Mike Pence is expected to travel Thursday to four hurricane-ravaged cities near Corpus Christi, the first area in Texas to receive the brunt of the hurricane, a senior administration official said. At this point, I expect breezy conditions starting on Friday, with winds in the teens, and gusting above 30 miles per hour. They were in the water for quite some time.

Trump first recognized the first responders to the tragic storm, praising their "heroic work".

The governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, warned that the recovery would be a "multiyear project".

More than 1,500 people are staying at shelters in Louisiana in Harvey's aftermath, and the number is rising as more people are evacuated from flood-ravaged communities in Texas. Most of that time, it was just a tropical storm since it lost its strong wind speeds after coming onshore.

"He felt the charge and knew something was wrong right away and tried to shake it off right away", his mother Jodell said. The proceeds will go to Feeding Texas, a network of food banks that is working to provide food to families in need. "Supplies are going to be tight but they're going to get better".

Certainly, there are many lessons to be learned from Harvey over the next few weeks, months and years. "It's exactly what I saw while in Texas this week, a spirit of love, determination and resolve". "So with practice tomorrow we'll do some kind of competitive situation and we'll continue that evaluation and then make the final decisions".
