Harvey makes another landfall
Texas-Louisiana border gets the brunt of flooding as the storm weakens
ORANGE, TEXAS — A weaker Harvey replicated its devastating roll Wednesday, returning to shore with a deluge of rain that inundated homes and highways and left police and government officials strug- gling to pluck people from the water.
The Texas-Louisiana border bore the brunt of Harvey’s second coming, this time as a tropical storm before it was downgraded Wednesday night to a tropical depression. It caused a repeat of the flooding endured by Houston, its suburbs and nearby beach towns when it made first landfall last week as a Category 4 hurricane before meandering back to the Gulf of Mexico. It has dumped up to 50 inches of rain in spots, leaving more than 20 dead.
