The storm has killed at least five people in Texas and authorities expect that number to rise.
The city is being inundated with cries for help, to the point where some 911 calls are going unanswered, according to Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner.
While the city is preparing for almost 50 inches of rain in the coming days, Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Brock Long said he expects FEMA to be there for “years.”
