A week after Hurricane Harvey pummeled the Texas coast as a Category 4 storm, some residents of the region are finally beginning their journey toward recovery. Others, left without drinking water, forced from their homes, or trapped in cities transformed into islands, are still stuck in the middle of a crisis.
- Local officials have recorded at least 46 deaths related to the storm as of this morning, and warned that the number could rise as recovery efforts continue.
- The core of the storm, which is beginning to lose some of its tropical characteristics, is traveling north up the Ohio River Valley and Mid-South, according to the National Weather Service.
- The storm isn't expected to dissipate until later Saturday.
