Harvey Live Updates: New Worries About Storm Damage as Beaumont’s Drinking Water Shuts Off

With drinking water cut off, its river still rising, and most routes in and out of the city flooded, Beaumont suffered the worst of Texas’ hardships on Thursday, and they showed no sign of abating.Flooding shut down the pumping plants that supply water to Beaumont in the morning, prompting a hospital to transport its patients out of the city, and trucks carrying bottled water struggled to reach the largely isolated city.The Neches River surged far beyond its banks, into streets, houses and businesses in the city of almost 120,000 people 70 miles east-northeast of Houston, reaching six feet above the previous record by afternoon, the National Weather Service reported. It was projected to rise another foot by Friday afternoon.The loss of water was just one of a host of new dangers emerging in the aftermath of Harvey, a storm system that pounded southeast Texas with record rainfall for several days before blowing across Louisiana and into Mississippi. Once a Category 4 hurricane, Harvey has been downgraded to a tropical depression.A series of small explosions shook a chemical plant about 25 miles northeast of downtown Houston on Thursday and more blasts were expected, after floodwaters shut down the cooling systems that kept the chemicals stable […]

Prone to flooding, Houston readies for ‘a rainmaker.’Emergency officials in Houston said they did not expect to order evacuations as the storm that Mayor Sylvester Turner called “a rainmaker” neared. Residents cleared grocery store shelves and airports braced for the possibility of delays. The school district has canceled events on Friday as well as classes on Monday.The forecast has revived memories of past storms. In 2001 a tropical storm named Allison inundated southeast Texas and was blamed for 22 deaths in the area.Government officials spent some time this week batting down rumors. Mr. Turner complained that “false forecasts and irresponsible rumors on social media” were interfering with efforts to distribute accurate information.“Rumors are nothing new,” Mr. Turner said, “but the widespread use of social media has needlessly frightened many people today.” — ALAN BLINDER in HoustonAn unblinking eye.NASA tweeted an image of the churning center of the storm.Travelers have been grounded.Dozens of flights had already been canceled on Friday morning as airports along the Texas coast warned that Harvey could disrupt travel for days.
