With Hurricane Harvey weakening to a tropical storm,  Houston is still getting hit with nonstop rain.

Houston and other cities in Texas are not out of the woods yet and many are fearing catastrophic storm has only just begun. With Hurrican Harvey now categorize as a tropical storm, it is expected to drop 20-25 inches of rainfall on Houston, according to CNN.

To put this in perspective, Houston’s annual rainfall is 20-25 inches and the city is expected to see those numbers within the next 4 to 5 days.

Rescuers and the National Guard are still searching for people who are trapped on the roof of homes, hotels, and cars. Residents have even helped by using their own boats to rescue people who did not leave the city before the hurricane touched down on Friday.

“We have nowhere to go,” said Lewis, of New Braunfels, Texas. “If you go out and look at the service road it’s flooded. I have a 2016 Chevy Silverado and the water is up to the door panels. The water keeps rising.”

All major highways have been shut down due to flooding. Many of the residents who are fighting the storm are literally stranded and waiting for rescuers to move them to safer grounds.

We keep Houston in our prayers and will keep you informed with more updates as they come in.
