'Dramatic Flooding' Primary Concern as Harvey Rages On

Emergency services have received about 6,000 calls for emergencies and rescues, Acevedo said during a televised media briefing on Monday.

Trump plans on visiting Texas Tuesday.

The damage bill of Hurricane Harvey is already drawing comparisons to Hurricane Katrina in 2005, which caused $108 billion of losses (including $80 billion of insured losses).

The scale of such efforts pales in comparison to what Houston would have faced, with the population of the five parishes included in the federal emergency declaration approved on Monday totalling fewer than 340,000 people.

As a former member of the University of Houston football program for four years, Bowser can't help but think about the city in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, which has flooded the nation's fourth-largest city.

Thousands of rescue missions were launched across Texas, and Governor Greg Abbott said that more than 3,000 national and state guard troops had been deployed to assist with relief efforts. The good news is, you can help. We're just stuck here until the water recedes.

"We are striving for a new normal here", Long said at a news conference Monday, warning that day-to-day routines would be disrupted for weeks.

Ryan Maue of WeatherBell, a weather analytics company, told CNN that Harvey has already left 11 trillion gallons of rain over the state of Texas and predicts by the time it moves on, it will leave more than twice that amount of rain over the state.

Up to 20 more inches of rain could fall in the coming days, on top of the 30 inches some areas have experienced so far.

But as the Louisiana parish where he serves as emergency preparedness director faces its own deluge from Tropical Storm Harvey, Gremillion also is advising local residents to stay home if they can.

Three people were previously known to have died as a result of the storm. Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images People wait in a city dump truck on an I-610 overpass for evacuation. "We're anticipating over 30,000 people being placed in shelters temporarily".

Hundreds of Houston-area roads were blocked by high water.
