Trump makes statement on floods without saying anything inappropriate

"To see the swiftly response of the federal government is unparalleled", Abbott said.

The federal aid programs were made available after President Donald Trump issued a disaster declaration ahead of Harvey's landfall.

"A child is helped off the back of a rescue truck after his family evacuated their home after it was inundated with flooding from Hurricane Harvey on August 28, 2017 in Houston, Texas". It will ultimately be up to leaders in Congress to figure out how to wrap these things together - or not, the official said.

"The need to volunteer is going to take place over the next couple of years", Long said, noting that the disaster covers 50 counties.

Others think that he’ll continue to use the picks himself and construct a young core that can emerge after the Cavaliers vs. Fultz is an ideal scoring guard to run alongside him, and can also take over point guard duties if the Simmons experiment fails.

One GOP source familiar with the discussion told CNN that the lawmakers discussed an "immediate package as well as longer-term bill" to address the range of needs of those dealing with massive flooding. He also didn't blame former President Barack Obama for the hurricane. Long says the agency has already processed over 15,000 calls from people registering for disaster assistance, a fraction of the more than 450,000 it expects.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican and Trump ally, however, loaded heavy praise on the president and the federal government, describing it as an "A-plus" effort. "Hurricane Harvey left a trail of devastation Saturday after the most powerful storm to hit the USA mainland in over a decade slammed into Texas, destroying homes, severing power supplies and forcing tens of thousands of residents to flee". Abbott said he expected heavy rain "for days to come".

Harvey was downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm by the NHC late on Saturday. Residences of the 18 counties - Aransas, Bee, Brazoria, Calhoun, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Goliad, Harris, Jackson, Kleberg, Liberty, Matagorda, Nueces, Refugio, San Patricio, Victoria, Wharton - should start registering online for FEMA funds as soon as possible, said FEMA administrator William "Brock" Long. The Department of Homeland Security, which oversees FEMA, is now without a secretary. Brown quit his post shortly after that over what was viewed as a mishandling of the federal response to Katrina.
