Just one day after Hurricane Harvey made landfall in southeastern Texas, historic flooding continued to wrack the city of Houston and surrounding areas.

The Washington Post reported the National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Service is “calling for an additional 15-25 inches of rain over the middle and upper Texas coast, including the Houston area, during the next several days, with isolated amounts possibly reaching 40 inches.”


While the storm was reported to have killed at least one person as of Saturday, by Sunday, the Houston Chronicle reported the body count is suspected to have risen to five people.
Authorities urged residents to shelter in their residences, or even climb onto the roofs of their homes if they were flooding
