Hurricane Harvey could be the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history with a potential price tag of $190 billion, according to a preliminary estimate from private weather firm AccuWeather. Hurricane Harvey dumped 33 trillion gallons of water in the U.S. Its blistering winds destroyed buildings, boats and homes standing in its path. At least 33 people have been killed in eastern Texas since the storm hit. Parts of Texas have been hit by more than 51in of rainfall since Hurricane Harvey landed on 25 August, setting new rainfall records for the contiguous-US. Large areas of Houston, the fourth most populous city in the US, remain under water. More than 10,000 rescues have been made so far, with neighbors and strangers stepping in to help in unprecedented numbers. Almost 325,000 people have registered with Federal Emergency Management Agency for disaster assistance. No one knows how many people are in shelters, just that more are expected.
