As our FOX13 crew enters day two in Houston, the rain continues to fall. Parking lots are ponds and roadways are rivers.
Everything you're reading about Houston is true. Relentless rain and flooding. We are staying put. pic.twitter.com/FoXopeb2pz— Lindsey Monroe (@WxLindseyFOX13) August 27, 2017
Water began to pile up during the overnight hours Sunday and many awoke to their cars emerged and the first level of most buildings overtaken by water. Harvey has since made its way back into the Gulf of Mexico, where it will continue to generate rain bands that will add to the already flooded out area.
FOX13's Lindsey Monroe is in Houston. Below is a Facebook Live that shows the extent of the devastating flooding on Sunday.
The request for rescues in the area has been significant. The Houston police chief said more than 2,000 people have been rescued so far, and more than 100 requests for help are still pending as of Monday morning.
Many agencies -- including the Memphis-based Tennessee Task Force One -- are among those helping execute rescues.
Right now, the locally-based group is in Katy, Texas, just west of Houston, making rescues.
Our FOX13 crew in Houston has been moved from their original hotel, and they are relocating to Katy to meet up with the task force.
