While it has been downgraded into a tropical storm it continues to cause chaos and more heavy rain is expected.

Water in a Houston-area neighborhood along a creek that's overflowing reached the roofline of single-story homes Monday.

Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas on Friday.

Trump closely monitored the storm's progress and federal relief efforts over the weekend from Camp David and his aides said Sunday that Trump had given the federal government full latitude to assist and coordinate disaster relief efforts.

Mr Long says the Army Corps Engineers to restore power and critical infrastructure.

The highest reported total from the storm so far is 30.56 inches in the Forest Oaks neighborhood of Houston. As of Monday morning, the campaign had raised almost $400,000.

Harvey has wreaked havoc along the U.S. Gulf Coast, flooding Houston and forcing the closure of several oil refineries. City residents who were not in a safe place were evacuated from their homes by boats and helicopters.

The volume of rainfall from Tropical Storm Harvey is probably linked to climate change associated with global warming that increases the amount of moisture in the atmosphere, the United Nations weather agency said on Tuesday.

That was a person whose body was so badly burned in a mobile home fire in Rockport, the county seat, during the storm that medical examiners have been unable to determine the sex.

President Donald Trump will visit the stricken area on Tuesday, his spokesman said. A 10-member ground support crew was also deployed, fire officials said.

Parts of Texas are expected to see a year's worth of rainfall in the span of a week.

The devastating storm has dumped more than two feet of rain, sending thousands of people in Houston to rooftops for rescue and prompting a warning from Federal Emergency Management Agency director Brock Long of a "landmark event" that could require years to get damaged areas back on track.

"Due to public safety concerns resulting from the ongoing weather emergency related to Hurricane Harvey, Thursday's Dallas Cowboys-Houston Texans game originally scheduled to be played in Houston at 7 p.m. CT has been relocated to AT&T Stadium in Arlington", the National Football League said in a release. It was moving to the southeast at 3 miles per hour.
