On 27 August 2017 The Associated Press reported:
Tropical Storm Harvey sent devastating floods pouring into the nation's fourth-largest city [Houston, Texas] Sunday as rising water chased thousands of people to rooftops or higher ground and overwhelmed rescuers who could not keep up with the constant calls for help. The flooding was so widespread that authorities had trouble pinpointing the worst areas. As the water rose, the National Weather Service issued another ominous forecast: Before the storm that arrived Friday as a Category 4 hurricane is gone, some parts of Houston and its suburbs could get as much as 50 inches (1.3 meters) of rain. 'The breadth and intensity of this rainfall is beyond anything experienced before,' the National Weather Service said in a statement. Rescuers had to give top priority to life-and-death situations, leaving many affected families to fend for themselves. ... The deteriorating situation was bound to provoke questions about the conflicting advice given by the Governor and Houston leaders before the hurricane. Governor Greg Abbott urged people to flee from Harvey's path, but the Houston mayor issued no evacuation orders and told everyone to stay home.
