›› Har­vey in pho­tos: Boats tossed, build­ings va­por­ized.

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

The slow-mov­ing Cat­e­gory 4 hur­ri­cane bat­tered Texas on Satur­day, forc­ing thou­sands of peo­ple from their homes along the coast. The most pow­er­ful storm to strike the U.S. in a decade wreaked havoc from Cor­pus Christi to Hous­ton and con­tin­ues to pose a se­ri­ous risk for tor­na­does and life-threat­en­ing flood­ing as it stalls over the state. Now weak­ened, the storm’s rem­nants are ex­pected to hover in South­east Texas through this week.
