Tropical storm Harvey has caused a total catastrophe in Texas. According to the National Weather Service, more then 30 inches of rain has deluged Texas in the last 36 hours, killing five people and destroying property.

The city of Houston has been hit particularly hard. More then 80,000 of the city's two million residents have been left without power.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced Sunday that 50 counties had been declared state disaster areas.
