Side-by-Side Video Captures Houston Before and After Hurricane Harvey
Using Google Street View, the New York Times released a video Sunday showing highways and roads in Houston, Texas, before and after Hurricane Harvey made landfall.
Thus far, six people have died in the massive flooding and the rains continue to fall. Reporters with local news outlets, as well as CNN, have joined in to help with rescues as 911 lines were jammed with pleas for help.
News also broke over the weekend that President Trump had disbanded a 2015 order set by former President Barack Obama that aimed to make roads, bridges, dams, levees and other infrastructure more resilient to combat the impacts of climate change. The objective of the order was to offset some of the damage caused by rising sea levels and persistent flooding. Houston would have been one of the main cities to receive this assistance.
Current predictions say there could be as much as 15 inches of rain in the coming days.
