• The National Weather Service said Tuesday that Harvey has
now set a record for total rainfall from a single tropical cyclone in the
continental United States, with two weather stations in Texas reporting total
rainfall over 48 inches.
• Local officials said there were 13 deaths in Texas so far
that were storm-related or suspected to be storm-related. Officials in Houston
confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that Sgt. Steve Perez, 60, died while driving to
duty on Sunday.
• The Houston Police Department has rescued more than 3,500
people from flooding since the storm began, Chief Art Acevedo said on Tuesday,
up from about 2,000 a day earlier. The city fire chief, Samuel Peña, said his
department had performed more than 400 rescues. The Harris County Sheriff’s
Office did not have an updated figure on Tuesday, but said it was considerably
higher than the roughly 2,200 rescues it reported on Monday.
Hurricane Harvey smashed into Texas late Friday, lashing a
wide swath of the Gulf Coast with strong winds and torrential rain from the
fiercest hurricane to hit the U.S. in more than a decade.
