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