Baltimore Sun - - FRONT PAGE -

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.

But as Hous­ton got its first glimpses of sun­light in days, ar­eas to the east that had al­ready seen rain were wak­ing up to even more — and to wa­ter­logged homes. Or­ange, Texas, res­i­dent Mike Henry said he went to bed Tues­day with wa­ter only in his yard. He woke up to rain fall­ing Me­te­o­rol­o­gists ex­plain Har­vey’s great power NEWS PG 8
