Harvey Victims Face Hurdles, and Maybe Bills, in Getting Aid

PhotoA home in Spring, Tex., north of Houston, was still inundated on Tuesday, more than three days after Hurricane Harvey made landfall.Credit Ilana Panich-Linsman for The New York TimesAs a brutal storm continues to pound the Gulf Coast, tens of thousands of homeowners are turning to the government for help in repairing and rebuilding. Much of the aid they receive will require taking on debt — an unpleasant surprise to those who may lack the income to pay it back.And as victims of past disasters can attest, that aid may be cumbersome to obtain, insufficient to cover the cost of reconstruction, and take years to fully pay out.Government officials emphasize that the federal programs are meant to supplement, not replace, insurance and other financial buffers against catastrophe […]

Port Arthur Faces Harvey Flooding Disaster: ‘Our Whole City Is Underwater’

VideoIn Port Arthur, Harvey Continues Path of DestructionHomes and shelters were flooded and the largest oil refinery in the U.S. was shut down after heavy rains flooded Port Arthur, east of Houston, overnight Tuesday.By MALACHY BROWNE, BARBARA MARCOLINI and CHRIS CIRILLO on Publish Date August 30, 2017.Photo by Beulah Johnson, via Associated Press.Watch in Times Video »embed Even as the sun began to show in Houston on Wednesday, signaling a small measure of hope after days of devastating rainfall from Tropical Storm Harvey, a region east of the city faced disaster anew after it was pummeled by rain overnight.Residents of cities in Jefferson County, Tex., about 100 miles east of Houston, were desperate for help Wednesday morning after rain there caused floodwaters to rise precipitously and lightning made things particularly difficult for those responding to the storm.Many, finding emergency services unresponsive, sought assistance on social media, where their calls were amplified by digital onlookers seeking to help from afar.Port Arthur’s mayor, Derrick Freeman, said on Facebook early Wednesday morning that rescue teams were contending with fires while trying to get residents to safety.“Our whole city is underwater right now,” he wrote, in a message of encouragement that nonetheless communicated the distress the city was facing.The mayor of Beaumont, Becky Ames, told NBC that the flooding was like nothing she had ever seen before.“Every single body of water around us is at capacity and overflowing and the rain is still coming down,” she said.About 254,000 people live in Jefferson County, which Brock Long, the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said Wednesday had been “slammed with 20 inches of rainfall” overnight.As news reports teemed with images from Port Arthur showing flooded homes and shelters, the city’s name began to trend on Twitter early Wednesday morning as dozens of residents posted their addresses and conditions, saying that they were trapped in their houses with children and older people in dire need of assistance. Even the city itself used Twitter to call for help.A judge in Jefferson County, Jeff Branick, told a local news reporter that hundreds if not thousands of people were stranded on their roofs, on top of cars and in attics.Sites that may have been able to withstand less forceful weather gave way to the pouring rain.

Houston’s Hospitals Treat Storm Victims and Become Victims Themselves

He and others also said that a new federal rule stemming from Katrina — which requires a wide range of health providers to establish emergency plans — had led to significantly better preparedness among nursing homes. Federal health officials also analyzed Medicare claims to provide Texas officials with the likely addresses of homebound people who rely on power-dependent ventilators, oxygen concentrators and electric wheelchairs, among other needs. Responders also used the state’s voluntary registry to locate them and offer assistance. Mr. […]

Trump to Travel to Texas With Torrential Rain Still in the Forecast

Mr. Trump also used the hurricane to soft-pedal a bit of unrelated political business, announcing late on Friday night that he had pardoned Joe Arpaio, the former Arizona sheriff. The timing seemed anything but coincidental: With cable news channels switching to wall-to-wall storm coverage, the fierce criticism of Mr. Trump’s action, from Republicans as well as Democrats, was largely lost in the howling winds.There were other off-key moments throughout the weekend. At times, Mr. Trump’s tweets conveyed an unabashed excitement about the historic nature of the storm, even as it became clear that Houston and other cities faced a grinding crisis.“Wow,” he tweeted on Sunday morning. “Now experts are calling #Harvey a once in 500 year flood! We have an all out effort going, and going well!” An hour earlier, he noted, “Many people are now saying that this is the worst storm/hurricane they have ever seen […]

Trump Administration Prepares for Hurricane Harvey

“This could remain a dangerous storm for several days,” Mr. Bossert said as he outlined the federal goverment’s preparations.He later added: “Now is not the time to lose faith in your government institutions.”Mr. Trump received a briefing on the preparations Friday morning from top Homeland Security officials, including Mr. Bossert; his chief of staff, John F. Kelly; the acting Homeland Security secretary, Elaine Duke; and the FEMA administrator, Brock Long.Mr. Long, a former director of the Alabama Emergency Management Agency, is leading the federal response effort. His selection has been well received by emergency managers around the country, who say Mr. Long is battle-tested and well-connected with the states’ emergency teams […]

Leave town, coastal counties urge.Seven coastal counties from Corpus Christi to the western end of Galveston ordered mandatory evacuations of at least some areas. Mayor Joe McComb of Corpus Christi encouraged residents to leave voluntarily.Watch the storm intensify.Anthony Farnell, the chief meteorologist for Global News in Canada, tweeted a video Thursday of the intensifying storm.The turmoil could easily last into next week.“It is critical that users not focus on the exact forecast track of Harvey since cycle-to-cycle adjustment are likely,” the National Hurricane Center said in one of its updates on Thursday. “All locations within the hurricane and storm surge warning areas should be preparing for the possibility of major hurricane-force winds and life-threatening storm surge.”With the ultimate path of the storm uncertain, the governors of Louisiana and Texas have declared emergencies. In addition to the evacuation orders from some counties, school districts have canceled classes, and residents have been rushing to prepare their homes and businesses. — ALAN BLINDERNewsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Leak Investigations Triple Under Trump, Sessions Says

The Trump administration has been bedeviled by leaks large and small that have brought to light information ranging from White House infighting and the president’s rancorous phone conversations with foreign leaders to what surveillance showed about contacts by Mr. Trump’s associates with Russia — and even what Mr. Trump said to Russian visitors in the Oval Office about his firing of James B. Comey, the former F.B.I […]
