Do you intend to donate to Hurricane Harvey victims?

Shelter spokesman Tom McCasland said about 5,000 people slept on cots, while the rest slept on cardboards and blankets.

"I'm here because of Jesus", Sipe, a 23-year-old events planner, said. Tom McCasland, head of operations, said certified nurses and social workers are especially needed to report to the George R. Brown Convention Center.

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said would-be looters impersonating police officers knocked on doors in at least two parts of the city telling residents to evacuate their homes.

The Red Cross has since started to open shelters in Louisiana. And there's also - you see medical professionals walking by.

I'm just hearing this is the worst storm people have seen in a while. "We are looking at all the facilities that we have available to determine what our capacity is going to be", said Director of Homeland Security and Emergency Management Juan Ortiz. When she arrived at the convention center and was given a blanket and pillow, it was enough to bring her to tears - a sign of the mental and emotional stress many evacuees are experiencing. He said some people at GRB would be moved to those. "It was sad seeing all those kids".

At the convention center, they found a well organized and friendly staff of volunteers who handed them donated clothes, bedding, food and toys.

She intermittently left her shelter to peer around a street corner at cars coming around the corner.

The station was ground zero for Houston's Metro buses which made frequent trips to and from the George R. Brown Convention Center, picking up evacuees and taking them to safety.

"I've been out here for two days".

"If I would have stayed in the house, trying to protect everything, I wouldn't be here", Ms Phillips said, her voice swerving between softness and a matter-of-fact tone.

India were storming to another victory. "The board has been hugely supportive of everything that I do and what the players do". They were sensible, collected runs in singles and later on played their shots as they inched closer to the target.

"I don't feel like answering all those questions".

Meteorologists said the sprawling city would soon have a chance to dry out.

Right now, though, numerous roads that lead out of Houston and other affected areas are flooded, closed or damaged due to Harvey's record rainfall, according to the Texas Department of Transportation. (Photo by Cameron Langford/COURTHOUSE NEWS SERVICE).

The Houston Chronicle has reported that the officer, 60, was heading to work Sunday when he became trapped in high water on Interstate 45 in north Harris County and then couldn't get himself out of his vehicle.

In a press conference, officials reminded residents to remain clear of flood water which could have unsafe debris, down power lines and snakes.

Osteen said on Twitter that the church was inaccessible due to flooding. This is a slow rise. The displaced milled in large halls and corridors, a somber and impatient crowd that officials said could be out of homes for a month or more as the low-lying city empties trillions of gallons of rainfall. But I have also talked to a man who hasn't spoken to his parents for four days.

Despite the journey, Hanna kept a smile on her face.

I talked to someone who had come to sign up to be a volunteer, but they turned her away.

"I saw a lady check in with six cats", she said.

Officials ordered evacuations in several areas around levees or dams, but opted not to call for a mass evacuation, which could have led to chaos during the storm. Even a "little baby" was on the floor next to them, she described.
