USA: Hurricane Harvey smashes into Houston

Hurricane Harvey began wreaking havoc in Houston, Texas, on Saturday, as forecasters warn of life-threatening floods as an estimated three feet (0.91 metres) of rain is expected in what is the US’ biggest storm in a decade. However the hurricane, which was initially categorised as Category 4 with winds of 130mph (209 kph), has since been recategorised at Category 1 as wind speeds have decreased... Еще to 90mph (145 kph). Images of devastation in Corpus Christi and Rockport, towns in the direct path of the hurricane, have begun to emerge, whereas in Houston serious flooding remains more of a concern. Tens of thousands of Texans have been relocated inland, and an estimated 200,000 are without electricity, as forecasters warn that the hurricane could be hanging around for a while.
