Donald Trump To Head To Storm-Hit Texas On Tuesday

Hurricane Harvey

More than 30,000 people are expected to be placed temporarily in shelters, US Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Brock Long said yesterday at a news conference.

State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co, which isn't publicly traded, has the largest share in the market for home coverage in Texas, followed by Allstate Corp.

With the steering winds being so weak, so far it's been difficult to predict exactly where this storm will move and when. The Post's Angela Fritz explains what's next for the storm.

Mr Bryant, who works for BHP Billiton and is president of the Houston Lonestars Australian football club, said the large contingent of Australian expatriates in Texas were keeping in contact via social media.

James Lofton, a resident of the suburb of Spring Valley, made multiple journeys on his boat to ferry residents to safety from a nearby hotel to safety. Average rainfall totals will end up around one metre. The hurricane also impacted parts of Louisiana, Oklahoma and Illinois. And what I realized is - I took a few steps outside the front door, and I was already about several inches deep in my galoshes, and the water was moving.

The powerful system, now a tropical storm, pounded the region with torrential rains that were expected to continue for days, causing catastrophic flooding, according to the National Hurricane Center.

"Everybody in Houston stay safe", Watt said.

Evacuees are airlifted in a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter after Hurricane Harvey flooded their neighborhood on Aug. 27.

The state of Texas is facing a lengthy recovery effort after Hurricane Harvey caused billions of dollars-worth of damage in the state this weekend.

Evangelist Franklin Graham, who leads relief organization Samaritan's Purse and is cooarding with the RRS, pointed out that more than 200,000 people are without power.

"If you are looking to help, start there", Long said, flanked by other top federal officials.

Volunteers joined emergency teams to pull people from their homes or from the water, which was high enough in places to gush into second floors.

TURNER: No, not at all.

The American Red Cross is accepting donations online and by texting HARVEY to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

"People need help, and we are working to provide it", she said Monday.

Additional rain forecasted to fall in the Houston area through Friday.

The White House announced that President Donald Trump would visit Texas on Tuesday. Is there any relief in sight?
