Transcript for Houston caught in cross-hairs of Harvey
As ginger mentioned, Harvey tonight with Houston in the crosshairs, and several reported tornadoes in Texas and Louisiana already. On top of that, Houston is also bracing for the possibility of an additional 2 feet of rain. ABC's Victor Oquendo is there. Reporter: Houston in the firing line again. This coming after the first wave of twisters striking early this morning. My camper is on its side. I'm basically homeless. Reporter: We're standing in front of what's left of a storage facility in Katy, Texas, and just take a look around here. Torn up wood, mangled metal, all over the place here. If you take a look around, there's a number of items. What's left of a chair. That's an old TV, but here's the thing. This didn't all come from inside the storage facility. It came from across the street. We were out here yesterday with sandbags, probably 100 of them trying to prepare for the flood, but it ended up being a lot worse. Reporter: In nearby sienna plantation, neighbors taking cover. More than 50 homes damaged. Once he heard the boom across the house, we just ran to safety. Reporter: The ceiling caving in on the woman who lives here. The sky now visible from the living room. That all unfolding as Harvey hit. This time lapse video showing it eclipsing Houston. Right now the big worry here is flooding. We are taking this storm very, very seriously. For us, it is a rainmaker. That's the main thing for us. It's a rainmaker. Reporter: Authorities are watching bayous bursting and ready to overflow. Highways and major roads already closed. Others hard to navigate, and this car already submerged as the rain just keeps coming. And so far, more than 1,400 flights canceled in Houston. And Victor joins us live now from Houston. More than 9 million people under flash flood watches where you are right now, convict pvictor, and that spot is where officials are worried about? Reporter: Tom, this is definitely an area of concern. We're right in front of the Buffalo bayou, which is prone to flooding and it's up a few feet, and with about 2 feet of rain in the forecast, they will be keeping a close watch on this unpredictable storm, Tom. Victor, thank you.
