Tropical Storm Harvey has made landfall again, this time in Louisiana, according to the National Hurricane Center. The storm hit “just west” of Cameron, La., at 4 a.m. local time.
A storm surge warning has been issued for a large swath of Louisiana’s coastline, stretching from Holly Beach to Morgan City. Parts of Louisiana and Texas are under flash flood warnings through Wednesday morning, affecting areas where hundreds of thousands of people live.
As of Wednesday morning, the confirmed death toll from Harvey is eight, across four Texas counties — although that figure is likely to rise and does not include people who are missing or believed dead.
Harvey’s slow movement away from southeast Texas promises some relief from relentless rains that have inundated large swaths of Houston, Beaumont and other areas since a downpour began late last week. Late Tuesday, some Houston residents glimpsed something they hadn’t seen for days: the sun.”
