“As water began to recede Wednesday in some parts of flood-ravaged Houston, Tropical Storm Harvey shifted its wrath to the Beaumont-Port Arthur area of Texas, hitting the region with record-breaking rainfall and devastating floods.
“Our whole city is underwater right now but we are coming!” Port Arthur’s mayor, Derrick Freeman, said in a Facebook message overnight, as desperate residents sent out calls for help on social media.
Water filled homes and submerged roads, evacuees crowded shelters, local officials urged people who needed rescue to hang sheets or towels from windows, forecasters warned that the storm could spawn tornadoes, and the Louisiana State Police closed Interstate 10 heading toward Beaumont, just a few miles from the state line. The rain was expected to continue until Friday.
In Houston, Mayor Sylvester Turner said that he was pressing for the city to return to normal as quickly as possible. He said the city’s George Bush and William P. Hobby airports were scheduled to reopened Wednesday with limited service, and that school will start Sept. 5.”
