Harvey weakens to depression, rain continues

Harvey weakens to depression, rain continues”

Several other Houston-based athletes and teams have contributed to the ongoing efforts to help victims of Hurricane Harvey. She was rescued over the weekend by the Coast Guard after her Houston apartment was inundated with water.

Hurricane Harvey, a category 4 storm, made landfall on the 25th of this month, East of Corpus Christi, about 200 miles west of Houston.

"Hell no. Excuse my language, but hell no", Whitlee Hurd told NPR's Rebecca Hersher.

It may still be too early to assess the full scope of damage done by Harvey's powerful storm system. The floor is wet, and windows are broken.

"I assumed the ratings would be far higher than they would be normally".

That question was also being asked at an evacuation center in downtown Houston, where NPR's Nathan Rott reported on volunteer legal aides, like Amir Befroui, who said: "There are very, very limited circumstances in where you can choose not to pay your rent". "We will support you today, tomorrow, and the day after". For instance, the world's premier wild flock of whooping cranes is, for now, safe at their breeding habitat in Canada, but what will they face when they return to their wintering grounds at Aransas National Wildlife Refuge? That forced Baptist Beaumont Hospital to airlift almost 200 patients to other facilities.

"People who were in the shelters here are being bused to San Antonio". The Natchez River.is rushing over Interstate 10. One of them, Houston police Sgt. Steve Perez, drowned while trying to get to work. Total SA's refinery in Port Arthur is out with a power loss, a person familiar with that plant said.

Reuters adds: Houston strained under the arrival of tens of thousands of people fleeing submerged homes and flooded roads on Wednesday, while some incidents of looting and armed robberies forced a midnight curfew.

The sun was shining in Houston Wednesday as the heaviest rainfall appeared to be past the area, but catastrophic floods were still wreaking havoc on the city.

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 at last improve. The nation's seventh-largest district had been scheduled to reopen Monday but will now begin school on September 11.

Trump has yet to make a statement about the 30 people who lost their lives in the devastating flood. But still, so much to do.

All proceeds were going to the Hurricane Harvey relief effort. "It just does not end", he said.

Most of the money - $5.5 billion - is for FEMA, with $495 million to go to the Small Business Administration. He has even been seen wearing his own merchandise, which is for sale on his website, on his way to survey the damage. Flash flood warnings were issued in Texas and western Louisiana, with areas facing increasing rainfall totals.

Citing the spread of illegal activity that followed Harvey, the Justice Department says federal agencies have formed a working group to fight a variety of crimes, from insurance fraud and sham charities to identity theft, price gouging and other scams.

While the storm pushed into Louisiana, there was some relief in sight for Houston after days of torrential rain in the fourth most populous United States city.

The NBA and its players association are giving $1 million. It reports sending more than 416,000 meals to Louisiana, and more than 414,000 liters (about 110,000 gallons) of water.

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. "Approximately 53,000 pounds of medical equipment and supplies have been deployed to affected areas".
