Rising floodwaters from the remnants of Hurricane Harvey chased thousands of people to rooftops or higher ground Sunday in Houston, overwhelming rescuers who fielded countless desperate calls for help.At least three people have died since Harvey made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane, spawning tornadoes and lashing east and central Texas with torrential rains.As the floodwaters rose, the U.S. National Weather Service offered another ominous forecast: Before the storm passes, some parts of Houston and just west of the city could receive as much as 127 centimeters of rain.In Friendswood near Houston, authorities asked people with flat-bottomed airboats or fuel for them to help rescue people.The fiercest hurricane to hit the U.S. in more than a decade came ashore late Friday about 48 kilometers northeast of Corpus Christi as a mammoth Category 4 storm with 209 kmph winds.Harvey arrived as the fiercest hurricane to hit the U.S. in 13 years and the strongest to strike Texas since 1961's Hurricane Carla, the most powerful Texas hurricane on record.
