The conditions are only getting crazier as time passes, since another 50 inches of rainfall are expected. Photos have already emerged showing the total and utter devastation, with locals using boats to get around. Dogs are looking for their owners after being abandoned and many residents are trapped inside their homes as the flood waters continue to rise to frightening levels. It’s reported that Hurricane Harvey is a once in a lifetime storm for Texans. There was even chaos as people tried to prepare for the storm by heading to the store and grabbing all their necessities, including food, water and first aid.
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner previously made a statement and revealed that the storm is far from over. “People need to know, this is not a one, two-day event and done,” he told CNN. “Even though it may seem like it will get better, this is a four or five-day event starting tomorrow evening going through Monday or Tuesday.” Search and rescue teams are already being sent to those in need. It’s amazing that celebs at the VMAs also used their time in the spotlight to speak on behalf of those going through this, since every bit can help.
