Transcript for Texas Gulf Coast area threatened by days of rain ahead
threatened by days of rain in the forecast. As we just heard rob report. But areas along the coast are suffering from the full force of the hurricane. The mayor of one hard-hit city even asking residents not to return. Here's Matt Gutman with more. Reporter: Tonight, Harvey's destruction laid bare. Those category 4 winds topping 130 miles per hour. Chewing up whole Texas towns. In rockport, it is mind-numbing. Street after street, mash-ups of metal, siding and splintered wood. It will be a year, and it's not going to be easy. Reporter: Search and rescue operations still ongoing tonight. We teamed up with these firefighters. Fire department, anyone home? Reporter: It was there we found this man, Richard, and his dog Bentley. He'd been hurt trying to leave his home. Triaged by these firefighters. This house was lifted up, twisted 90 degrees, and set back down on the street here. Right there inside, we found the owners. We wanted to come down and get the family heirlooms out. Reporter: Outside the town of port orances, we found a police checkpoint. They allowed us to thread our way into town. An endless strip of destruction. Boats tossed up near gas stations. And business after business destroyed. But none of it matched what we saw at this mobile home park. Four rvs, smashed together and mashed together in the air, set down again. It's unclear where they started. These holdouts, hunkered down and watching the storm happen. The bottom of the trailers are sitting there. The tops aren't even there. Where are they at? Reporter: Officials tell me, it will be months before folks electricity or even water back. Further slowing the recovery, the remnants of Harvey coming back for a second time. Tom? So much of the focus on Houston right now. But rockport, hit so hard. Matt, thank you.
