Hurricane Harvey Havoc

Team Republic |

Harvey, the most powerful hurricane to hit the US in 13 years, left a trail of destruction as it swept through Texas on Sunday, pummelling the region with heavy rains and claiming at least five lives since making landfall on the US' Gulf Coast. After a night of flash flood and a tornado watch, Texas' largest city Houston woke up to a catastrophic morning, more life-threatening flash flooding, and non-stop heavy downpour as rescuers answered desperate calls for help all along the ravaged coastline.

The actual toll from Harvey remains unclear as rescuers were still trying to reach people stranded across the region. But the National Weather Service (NWS) said five people lost their lives in the Houston area in unconfirmed flood- related deaths. Fourteen people have also been injured.
