In Beaumont, Tex., Hopscotching for Food, Water and Shelter

PhotoA flooded neighborhood in Beaumont, Tex.Credit Eric Thayer for The New York TimesBEAUMONT, Tex. — Carrie Chambliss climbed into her husband’s truck on Friday and drove a winding route some 70 miles, plowing through deep water, to get from her home in Mauriceville to a grocery store in Beaumont that had “barely anything” left.For the second day in a row, Beaumont is without running water. With the city choked off by the floodwaters that have swamped smaller towns surrounding it, its grocery stores are quickly running out of staples like bread and eggs while lines of cars snake around a park where officials were handing out bottles of water. Residents are being urged to boil their own water — if they have any.Ms. Chambliss was among the many in this part of southeast Texas who, if they had not fled for drier ground, have gone days without electricity or water. She also has not been able to get to her job, as an X-ray technician in Orange. And her family was worried about her son, who has a brain tumor. […]

Forecasters warned that it was still far too early to know whether its path would lead it toward the United States.• The electricity provider Entergy said about 61,000 customers without power in eastern Texas on Friday morning, down from a peak of 84,000. About 9,500 customers in western Louisiana were also without electricity.• There were about 136,000 flooded structures just in Harris County, the state’s most populous, the county Flood Control District estimated on Thursday night.• Nationally, the average price of a gallon of regular gasoline continues to hit new highs for the year, reaching $2.52 on Friday morning, up from $2.45 on Thursday, according to the AAA motor club.• About 42,000 people were housed overnight at Red Cross and partner shelters in Texas, Suzy DeFrancis, a spokeswoman for the American Red Cross told CNN Friday, an increase since the day before.

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 […]

Deluged Texas Braces for More Rain, and Years of Recovery

In San Antonio, sprawling vacant warehouses had been turn into shelters that could hold more than 4,100 evacuees.How many residents had fled to hotels or the homes of friends or relatives was anyone’s guess.The City of Houston put out a call for doctors, nurses and social workers to go to the George R. Brown Convention Center, where thousands of people took shelter.At a school gym in San Antonio that had become a shelter for hundreds, people watched television coverage and searched social media feeds in hopes of collecting clues about the homes and neighbors they left behind. They dialed and redialed phone numbers that went straight to voice mail, or just rang, unanswered.Melanie Steele, 43, said she and her husband evacuated their home along a bayou in Houston’s Linkwood neighborhood with little more than their dog, Baxter, and a baggie of dog food. On Sunday night, she received an alert on her phone that the alarm had gone off in the house.“I’m assuming that means the water is pushing in” and that all she has is lost, she said as she sat in hotel room in Houston, hugging Baxter. “That literally put me into a tailspin.”GraphicMaps: Harvey’s Destructive Path Through TexasMaps and animated satellite imagery show the scale and reach of the storm.OPEN GraphicEight oil refineries, with about one-eighth of the nation’s refining capacity, shut down because of the storm, which could affect gas prices around the country. Both of Houston’s airports were closed, and hundreds of passengers were stranded.Hurricane Harvey made landfall on Friday night as a Category 4, the most powerful storm to strike the United States in more than a decade, and though it has been downgraded to a tropical storm, it lingered over the coastal region.By Monday, it had swamped the Houston region with more than 30 inches of rain in some places, and forecasters warned that the totals in some areas could top 50 inches before the storm moves on some time later this week.It is expected to move to the northeast, toward far eastern Texas and Louisiana, and bands of heavy rain were already lashing those regions. In New Orleans, which faced flooding earlier this month after heavy rains overwhelmed its drainage system, news that the far-flung storm could bring up to 10 inches of rain raised tension levels […]

Thousands of Texas Inmates Evacuated From Prisons Ahead of Floods

PhotoPrison inmates in Rosharon, Tex., were evacuated by bus on Saturday before expected flooding in the area.Credit Texas Department of Criminal JusticeThousands of inmates were being evacuated on Saturday from three prison facilities in Rosharon, Texas, as the Brazos River there continued to rise under heavy rains from Tropical Storm Harvey.The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said that about 4,500 inmates would be transported from the Ramsey, Terrell and Stringfellow units in Rosharon, which is just south of Houston, to other facilities in East Texas.The prisoners were being transported by bus and accompanied by correctional officers and other staff.“We’re doing everything we can to make sure everybody’s safe while the evacuation process is being carried out,” said Robert Hurst, a public information officer with the criminal justice department.He did not say where the prisoners would be taken, or how long the evacuation process might last.While away from Rosharon, the prisoners will “not be available for visits at the designated receiving units, but will have the ability to use the offender telephone system,” the criminal justice department said.Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas as a Category 4 hurricane on Friday night. It was downgraded to a tropical storm on Saturday, but heavy rains and serious flooding are expected in the state’s southeast.By Friday, the criminal justice department had canceled visitations for at least 29 prisons in the vicinity of the storm’s expected path. “This is something that we prepare for each year.

Public records show that among the inmates are Shawn Allen Berry, one of three men convicted in the racially motivated killing of James Byrd Jr., a black man who was dragged behind a car in 1998; and David Owen Brooks, who was convicted as an accomplice to Dean Corll, the perpetrator of the so-called Houston mass murders of the early 1970s.Continue reading the main story […]
