The US City of Houston is in the grip of the biggest storm in the history of the State of Texas.

A record 75 centimeter of rain has fallen on the city in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, turning Roads into Rivers.

Five people are reported dead. HOSPITALS have been evacuated and thousands of homes are without Electricity.

Up to 2,000 people have been rescued in and around Houston.

Harvey began as a category four Hurricane but was later downgraded to a Tropical Storm. It is moving slowly and is expected to remain over Texas until the Middle of the Week.

The US National Weather Service (NWS) says conditions are “unprecedented”.

A “Flash Flood Emergency” is in force across the Houston Area, with travel near impossible.

Many schools are closed – as are the two main Airports, with Runways completely flooded.

President Donald Trump is due to visit Texas Tomorrow to see the damage. He signed a disaster proclamation on Friday, paving the way for Federal Cash to go towards the relief effort.
