Tropical storm Harvey has displaced 15 Nepali families living in Greater Houston in Southeast Texas of the USA.

Harvey first made landfall Friday in Texas as a Category 4 hurricane.

Some Texas refineries could be back online by the end of the current week week, AAA hoped, when the storm shuttles rapidly northeast across the Ohio Valley.

Erickson warns that some coastal rivers won't be able to drain effectively because Harvey's winds are pushing in storm surge, aggravating flooding in areas already drenched by more than 20 inches of rain. "They respond the right way and communities come together". "Texas is going to get a chance to finally dry out as this system pulls out".

"A million dollar donation", Watt said in another video posted in response to the gift.

Bullock has a long history of generosity after disasters.

Exxon, Shell and other companies have reported to Texas regulators that some of their storage tanks and other facilities near Houston were damaged by the torrential rains and flooding.

Authorities have not yet confirmed a number that high, but have said casualty figures could rise once the floodwaters begin to recede.

Houston has received more than 42 inches of rainfall so far.

Unconfirmed reports of others missing or presumed dead are growing.

Stubub, a popular online reseller, decided Wednesday morning not to allow listings for the Dallas vs Houston game.

On Wednesday, Singapore's defence ministry sent four military helicopters to assist with the relief effort, airlifting troops, evacuees and supplies. Even more players showed up Tuesday.

"WE WILL NOT ASK FOR IMMIGRATION STATUS OR PAPERS AT ANY SHELTER", the city's official Twitter account said.

"It takes some time to start up a refinery under normal circumstances, and it wouldn't be surprising if they run into hiccups", said Smith, the HIS Markit analyst.

Several Texans players who didn't make the trip to New Orleans last weekend have been stuck in Houston. Thousands more are expected to flee.
