Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said at a press conference Tuesday that officers have rescued more than 3,500 people throughout the city, and have arrested several people who robbed members of the community and looters at a Game Stop store Monday night.

Due to questions from residents about how to aid those affected by Hurricane Harvey, the city of St. Charles informed local residents of the best way to help.

President Donald Trump visited Texas on Tuesday to survey the damage brought by Harvey, calling the storm "epic".

"We've had instances of looting; we've had armed robbers going around yesterday robbing our community, victimizing them again".

The massive relief mission across Houston is a testament to the strength of those beaten by the storms, but also those trudging through the waters to lend a hand, Mayor Sylvester Turner said. "And we need the housing assistance, we need an army of FEMA agents on the ground to be assisting people".

THE CROW Reboot Is Now Sony's Problem
Comic book fans are a bit excited for the reboot, since it will be more faithful to the original source material. The project was at Relativity Media for almost a decade with tons of directors and actors in the mix.

Mr Turner said the curfew would help prevent "property crimes" against evacuated homes, and was in force "only to prevent potential criminal acts". Sylvester said the Coast Guard was taking more than 1,000 calls per hour.

"We have been hearing popping noises, which is the organic peroxides decomposing", Moreno said. "We're a really good city, we're a welcoming city". "There is no doubt in my mind that the city that I know, where I was born and reared, this city that I know, this city will bounce back like never before". He first arrived in Corpus Christi, where Hurricane Harvey made its first landfall on Friday.

Trump is clearly determined to seize the moment and show a forceful response to Harvey, mindful of the political opportunities and risks that natural disasters pose for any president.

But he says in his area at least, improving weather means water is receding and he now intends to help out in the neighbourhood.

Darian Ward, a spokeswoman for Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, said the convention center adjacent to the city's National Football League stadium and the Astrodome will open at 10 pm Tuesday. And officials acknowledge that fatalities from Harvey could soar once the floodwaters start to recede from one of America's most sprawling metropolitan centers.
