MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - As of Saturday evening, Harvey has now lost its "hurricane" status and is now a tropical storm hovering over south Texas with torrential rains and winds up to 65 miles per hour.

It has since been downgraded to a tropical storm.

"The Swift Water team would conduct search and rescue tactics during Hurricane Harvey, including rescues from those stranded [by] severe flooding", she said.

At least one person died in a house fire during the storm, Aransas County Judge Burt Mills said, and about a dozen others suffered minor injuries like broken legs.

There are fears of catastrophic flooding in Texas as Tropical Storm Harvey knocked out power to more than 230,000 people despite being downgraded to a tropical storm. It weakened overnight to Category 1.

Moreno has been without electricity since 7 p.m. Friday night, and the possibly of that remaining for the days ahead has increased.

Corpus Christi officials tweeted Saturday afternoon that evacuees could return "but be advised we are under a water boil advisory & limited wastewater usage due to outages at treatment plants".


It will take cities and towns in the path of Hurricane Harvey years to recover from the devastation created by the monster storm, the head of the US Federal Emergency Management Agency said Saturday. Some structures were destroyed.

About 10 people were taken to the county jail for treatment after the roof of a senior housing complex collapsed, television station KIII reported.

"We're suggesting if people are going to stay here, mark their arm with a Sharpie pen with their name and Social Security number", Rockport Mayor Pro Tem Patrick Rios told reporters. Earlier forecast models indicated the storm could re-emerge briefly over the Gulf of Mexico and then make a second landfall in northeastern Texas or Louisiana. When you go through a Category 4 hurricane and just that roar, the incessant roar that you hear and the shaking of the buildings, it just - it really affects people to their core.

By late morning, Harvey's maximum sustained winds had fallen to about 75mph and the storm was centred about 25 miles west of Victoria, Texas. Their reasons ranged from their confidence that their homes were safe places during a hurricane to having an elderly relative who couldn't be moved easily.

Several of the volunteer trainers teaching the course just returned from supporting Midwest flood relief, and the skills they learned will no doubt come in handy when responding in the aftermath of Harvey.

US President Donald Trump, facing the first big natural disaster of his term, signed a disaster proclamation on Friday.

Brock Long told ABC News that the proclamation allowed FEMA to "bring the entire firepower of the federal government down to help our state and local governments meet their responsibility and recovery goals". If the storm continues dumping tens of inches of water across large swathes of Texas, as is expected, flooding in the Houston and Beaumont areas could continue to affect oil production. Officials speaking in Rockport said the damage appeared to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
