While tropical storm Harvey is still dumping unprecedented amounts of rain on southeast Texas, including Houston and Galveston, the leading edge of the storm is moving further into the Louisiana. The city of Lake Charles, Louisiana has already experienced heavy rain, and now New Orleans and the state capital of Baton Rouge are feeling its effects.
The eye of the storm is actually moving back into the Gulf of Mexico where it will gather up even more moisture to dump on the states when it moves back onshore. The entire Texas National Guard of 12,000 has now been mobilized, and volunteers with boats have poured in from other states to assist in the massive rescue efforts. Trump has also signed a disaster declaration for Louisiana.
