Trump said, tagging Chuck Grassley in the tweet.

"Assistance can include grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-priced loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover from the effects of the disaster", the statement read.

There were already 1,500 evacuees in state parks, while Abbott said he activated more than 1,800 service members to help with cleanup. "We're also figuring out how fast we can get those things to them".

"Right now we're still hunkered down and can't go anywhere", said volunteer fire chief Steve Sims early on Saturday.

"The powerful Harvey initially reached land by 11 p.m.between Port Aransas and Port O'Connor, Texas, with the then-Category 4 storm packing winds of more than 130 miles per hour". Forecasters said its impact will leave some areas "uninhabitable for weeks or months".

The Coast Guard urges Texas residents to stay safe and avoid venturing out while the damage is assessed.

Houston was also effected by torrential downpour, according to The Chicago Tribune, with rain falling at nearly 3 inches per hour and major flooding. And the post of deputy FEMA director is vacant as Trump's nominee awaits Senate confirmation.


Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Brock Long tweeted that the agency was supporting Texas state authorities in their efforts to contend with the storm.

"We hate to talk about things like that.It's not something we like to do but it's the reality, people don't listen", he said to ABC News.

There has also been transportation services set up, and the response from the public has been fast for pleas for items such as bedding and towels in San Antonio, where people from Corpus Christi have sheltered, said the governor, and he is grateful.

The storm threatens Texas's recovering economy.

"However, given the severity and projected path of the storm along with potential challenges guests may encounter attempting to travel back to Galveston independently, we are strongly encouraging them to remain on board as we intend to return the ships to Galveston as soon as feasible", Carnival said.

Remember, the storm is an evolving system and its track could change.

The day before, Abbott ordered the State Operations Center to elevate its readiness level and is making state resources available for preparation and possible rescue and recovery actions. "In 1970, Hurricane Celia blew through here, and I want to tell the people of this community that the greatest asset that they can have for the next three or four days is patience, because this storm is not going to play out overnight".
