The threat of flooding continued to increase into the weekend and as of Sunday morning, Houston had seen 24 inches of rainfall! "We're dealing with Congress", Trump said, speaking from the Oval Office, "as you know it's going to be a very expensive situation".

"In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, areas of the Coastal Bend will no doubt be devastated and long-term recover needs of the under-served population will emerge", the group said in a Facebook post.

It has since lingered around Texas' Gulf Coast, where it is forecast to remain for several more days, drenching parts of the region with a year's worth of rain in the span of a week.

A marooned hospital has been evacuated while, above the city, engineers are starting an emergency release of water from two bulging dams. On Sunday, he convened a cabinet meeting by telephone in response to the disaster. There have been no decisions made on the duration of our stay in Dallas or on details regarding our preseason game against the Cowboys on Thursday.
