Transcript for Harvey slams eastern Texas with new floods
Harvey is making landfall again for the third time, the tropical storm hitting Louisiana this morning and battering parts of eastern Texas, take a look at this image, that is a shelter in Patti, Texas, not only dling with an overwhelming amount of flood victims but now dealing with flooding of their own. The problems just keep compounding and the front page of "The Houston chronicle" this morning, it's dark and sad, epic flooding shows no mercy. We are also seeing heart, heroism, community and neighbors hand in hand, a human chain to safety. That's incredible and here is what we know at this hour. More than 13,000 people have been rescued in the Houston area. The death toll rising to 11 as a result of the deadly storm. And that relentless rain adding up to an unprecedented 51. 8 inches. We have never seen that in the continental United States and team coverage from the disaster zone across southern Texas and Louisiana. Senior meteorologist rob Marciano starts us off from Richmond, Texas. Good morning, rob. Hey, good morning, George. The rain has finally stopped here in Houston, but the water continues to rise. This as tropical storm Harvey makes its looping turn and a second U.S. Landfall now spinning in Louisiana, but causing more flooding chaos across east Texas. This morning, 25 more inches of rain falling on parts of east Texas. The latest deluge adding to the already flooded streets swallowing up these neighborhoods in galveston and Port Arthur. Causing whitecaps on I-10 and a crisis at local shelters. Now everybody is starting to panic and it's not fun anymore. This is beginning to be a traumatic experience. Reporter: At the civic center in Port Arthur reports of three to four feet of water seeping this through the exit doors. The floor covered. Water started to crawl up the bleachers. You have older people, you have infant babies, kids walking in this water and they have all kinds of insects, spiders and frogs, snakes in this water and they moved us up to the bleachers but that's not helping. The water's rising up. Reporter: Outside the street so dangerous calling off rescue attempts overnight putting a wall of water between firefighters and homes burning. The mayor trying to maintain order, facebooking our whole city is underwater right now but we are coming. Harvey clearly not done yet. The rain still coming down in the golden triangle of port Arthur, Beaumont and Orange, Texas, as Harvey finally ejects north but we have a long way to go with this storm. Rob Marciano, thanks so much.
