Following Friday's landfall of Hurricane Harvey, at the time a dangerous Category 4 storm, many affected regions have been declared disaster areas.

 

As the slow-moving storm continues to dump record-breaking amounts rain throughout the state, weather officials and local emergency services are warning of heavy flooding and tornadoes in the region. Several counties have reported rainfall levels at their highest since World War II.
