Before and after pictures of Houston shows the devastating effect of the Hurricane Harvey

The sudden rise in water level, the damage and the chaos it has created is terrifying. The effect of gravity of the hurricane can be seen across the nation.

Matthew Sitkowski, a senior editor of the weather channel, recently tweeted about the Houston’s East Loop at the Market street that “This image and the forecast of what is still to fall… this is surreal”.

Jeff Linder from the Harris County Flood Control said to Fox 26 that “within one night the Houston was dumped with 650 billion gallons of water”. The KOHU-11 TV station evacuated on Sunday morning as the rise in water level was rapid.

The National Weather Service Houston posted a warning to the citizens that “river is one rise and MAJOR  to RECORD flooding is forecasted”.  According to the predictions of the forecasting, torrent rainfall is expected to continue through Friday. In some areas, there are chances of rise in waterfall till 5 feet.

Thousands of water rescues are underway as the rain has never stopped. The NWS also says that “emergency management officials have requested that people escaping flood waters as a last resort do not stay in the attic. If the highest floor of your home becomes dangerous… get on the roof. Call 911 for help and stay on the line until answered”.
