Mayor Turner Confirms Three Harvey-Related Deaths, Says to Stay Off Roads

Mayor Turner Confirms Three Harvey-Related Deaths, Says to Stay Off Roads”

But Houston received a bit of good news Thursday.

More than 500 people - along with dozens of dogs, cats, a lizard and a monkey - took shelter at the Max Bowl bowling alley in Port Arthur after firefighters popped the lock in the middle of the night, said the establishment's general manager, Jeff Tolliver.

Two more shelters were cleared to open Tuesday in Houston as the George R. Brown Convention Center reached almost double its maximum capacity, Gov. Greg Abbott told CBS News. The crowds included many from outside Houston.

People exempt from the curfew include flood relief volunteers, people seeking shelter and people going to and from work, Turner said.

At least eight Rice players know their apartments or houses near campus have flooded, along with numerous vehicles, Bailiff said.

And the city's Addicks Reservoir, which was overwhelmed and caused widespread flooding this week, has also peaked.

The city's police chief Art Acevedo said he had recommended the move to the mayor after several reports of looting in what is America's fourth largest city.

Houston police board an airboat as the search for flood victims and other rescue operations continue in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey on Tuesday.

Once the dive team got to the scene, it was "too treacherous to go under and look for him", Acevedo said. In the city of Houston, you've got thousands of people that are impacted, (and) we need a lot of FEMA workers on the ground registering and processing those applications, we need to be able to give them the assurance, some sort of temporary housing, permanent housing for them.

Perez worked with the Houston Police Department's traffic enforcement division.

Six members of a family were feared dead after their van sank into Greens Bayou in East Houston.

"In the short term, the catastrophe suffered by the Houston area will be an antidote to the extreme partisan politics", Jones said.

On Sunday, the National Hurricane Center urged residents to stay put, warning that most deaths from hurricanes occur in the waters afterwards. But the releases were not enough to relieve the pressure after the relentless downpours, Army Corps of Engineers officials said.

With the world watching post-Harvey, the political stakes will be sky high for both Turner and Abbott. "Get out Now!" Brazoria County officials told residents, after water from the Brazos River broke over the levee at Columbia Lakes. Perez was a 34-year veteran of the force and was on his way to work on Sunday when his patrol auto became trapped in flood waters.
