One week after Harvey slammed into southeast Texas as a Category Four hurricane, rescuers were still searching by air and by boat for people trapped in flooded homes.


A fresh blaze broke out late Friday at a chemical plant in Crosby, northeast of Houston, sending a giant plume of thick black smoke billowing into the sky.

And as floodwaters receded in Houston, the fourth most populous city in the United States, nearby cities such as Beaumont — which had lost its water supply — and Port Arthur struggled to recover. (AFP)
