U.S. emergency management officials said on Monday they were committed to getting federal resources to Texas as quickly as possible to help with the flooding caused by Tropical Storm Harvey, with more than 450,000 people likely to seek assistance.
Federal Emergency Management Agency administrator Brock Long said more than 30,000 people were expected to be placed temporarily in shelters after the storm made landfall over the weekend.
As Hurricane Harvey continues to batter the south Texas coast, national newspapers reacted to the disaster with headlines and photos to fit the storm, which has left at least 31 dead as of Aug. 31. The word “catastrophe” appeared frequently. (Reuters/Yahoo News)
