President Donald Trump is expected to visit Texas Tuesday for updates on the devastating flooding from Harvey as crews overwhelmed by thousands of rescue calls have had little time to search for other potential victims.

Those tools, Ferraro says, include an end to building and rebuilding in areas prone to flooding, investments in infrastructure that facilitates (rather than inhibits) stormwater runoff, better communication about flood insurance, and more efficient government-led evacuation efforts.

Harris County officials told the Reuters news agency on Tuesday that waters levels in the Addicks and Barker reservoirs were at record highs, forcing engineers to release more water into the city's swollen drainage system to alleviate pressure.

"While the hurricane-force winds have diminished - I want to stress that we are not out of the woods yet", said acting US Homeland Security chief Elaine Duke.

Additional Air National Guard members from Long Island have been deployed to Texas to help in the response to Harvey, state officials said Tuesday.

"This was of epic proportion", Trump said of the storm while he pledged massive aid. "Nobody's ever seen anything like this".

The storm has drawn comparisons with Hurricane Katrina, which devastated New Orleans 12 yeas ago, killing 1800 people.

Harvey is the first major natural disaster to hit the United States during Trump's presidency.

Erik Peterson and his son, Carlos, 10, are rescued from their house to a dam on the Addicks Reservoir. Goodness knows protecting people hasn't been a universal impulse during the course of the storm.

The top rainfall total is 49 inches near Dayton, Texas, which is located northeast of Houston.

Multiple looters were arrested overnight, police said.

Greg Carbin, chief of the National Weather Service's (NWS) forecast operations branch said that Texas still has a few more days of rain. The storm is strengthening slightly in the Gulf of Mexico and expected to make another landfall in southwest Louisiana Wednesday, said Gov.
