"I can't say thank you enough - celebrities musicians, athletes, kids with their lemonade stands, people hosting fundraisers, businesses donating - I cannot thank everybody enough", the NFL player said in a video posted to Twitter. People along the coast evacuated, while folks in Houston stocked up on a few days' worth of food and water. Thousands of people there have fled their homes. Conservatives went nuts, harrumphing "this is not presidential!"

In an article in the Washington Post, Anupam Ray, the consul general of India in Houston said, "The Indian community rallied to help the University of Houston".

On Thursday, Federal Emergency Management Agency workers and firefighters will assess the extent of Harvey's destruction in southwest Houston, the nation's fourth largest city.

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner imposed a curfew from midnight to 5am amid reports of looting, armed robberies and people impersonating police officers. The Texans have donated $1 million and the Titans gave $1 million to Watt's drive.

Deaths were also reported in four counties in south east of Texas. He was trying to figure out how to get back to his home, which was waist-deep in water the last time he saw it.

Flash-flood warnings remain in effect for parts of southern Louisiana and southern Mississippi.

Officials closed the highway I-10 from Houston to New Orleans because the floodwaters were so high.

Jim Crane, owner of the Astros, is working with the team and plans to give $4 million. Already, there have been improvements to the communication between the National Hurricane Center and the public. The Canadian Red Cross has launched an official appeal for donations to help victims of the storm that can be done online or by phone.

President Donald Trump returns to Texas today, this time to meet with families whose lives have been upended by Hurricane Harvey as well as volunteers with the rescue and recovery efforts.

Doing it better would require him to reverse direction.

The city's trash collection service resumed on Wednesday with heavy trash pickup. "But you know what, it happened in Texas and Texas can handle anything". The losses for others will be far worse. According to Camelia Gendreau, a spokesperson for the fundraising site, this makes it the biggest campaign in YouCaring history.

Burlington Resources is a subsidiary of ConocoPhillips.
