At least one person is dead and several others injured.

The Greater Cincinnati-Dayton Red Cross says they already mobilizing with plans to provide help.

Harvey slammed the gulf coast as a category four hurricane, with winds as strong as 130 miles per hour.

"We are America's disaster relief organization, and we're going to be there for the duration as these families pick the pieces back up and are hopefully able to continue living in that area". "It's in the not-so-sexy moments in the days, weeks, months that follow", Huckabee reminded.

The National Weather Service predicted Harvey could still linger as a tropical storm through early Wednesday and then weaken into a tropical depression.

Greg Abbott said at a news conference Saturday that around 20 inches of rain has fallen in Corpus Christi, and around 16 inches fell in the Houston area - and the biggest concern was the possibility of 20 to 30 more inches.

Training will take place Thursday at the Red Cross office in Troy.

"It's really not about us".

As a result, Regional Disaster Officer Robin Friedman expects to send at least two dozen more volunteers to Texas.

"Your looking at the loss of lots of homes", Spring said.

"They lost everything so it's just a get it done, can do attitude - a lot different scenario than working your regular job because you just get it done no matter what because these people need you", said David Cruickshank of the Berlin Police Department. We have so many more that will still deploy.
