Houston Faces More Flooding Due to Harvey

Posted: Updated:
Houston, TX -

Parts of Houston near two swollen reservoirs are facing more flooding, ten days after Harvey first made landfall. The monster storm also flooded several highly toxic waste sites near Houston and federal officials are planning to check them for possible damage.
 
Water flowed from the Addicks Reservoir in Houston Monday morning, flooding the surrounding neighborhoods. Officials also released water from a second Houston bayou reservoir forcing the mandatory evacuation of  residents. 
 
The controlled release is expected to continue for weeks.  The Army Corps of Engineers says it's necessary to avoid a much bigger catastrophe.
 
In the Houston suburbs, debris lines the streets as people begin the long road to recovery
And in Beaumont, Texas, national guardsmen airlifted in water to flood victims.
 
The environmental protection agency is checking out several toxic waste sites in southeast Texas today that have been flooded from Harvey.
 
In Channelview, Texas, people who live near the San Jacint river superfund waste site are worried about damage and possible contamination.
In Crosby Texas, evacuated residents near the disabled chemical plant  are  being allowed back home after officials successfully finished controlled burns of highly flammable chemicals.
