Hurricane Harvey causes ‘catastrophic flooding’ in Houston and Texas, thousands of rescue calls made

Typhoon Harvey continue hitting southeastern Texas on Sunday with “catastrophic flooding” in Houston, driving occupants to escape to their rooftops and higher ground as authorities react to a large number of 911 calls for salvages in the “remarkable” occasion.

The National Hurricane Center’s 7 p.m. CDT counseling demonstrates the focal point of Harvey 120 miles southwest of Houston. Forecasters said “some slight strengthening is conceivable after the center moves off the coast on Monday night and Tuesday.”

Precipitation from Harvey could reach up to 50 inches in a few places, making it the most noteworthy at any point recorded in the express, the National Weather Service declared.

“This event is unprecedented and all impacts are unknown and beyond anything experienced. Follow orders from officials to ensure safety,” the National Weather Service wrote on Twitter.
