Amateur video shows Harvey's trail of destruction as a second person is reported killed in the most powerful storm to hit Texas in more than 50 years.
A second person was killed on Saturday (August 26) as Harvey, the most powerful storm to hit Texas in more than 50 years, roared inland, knocking out power to more than 230,000 people and threatening catastrophic flooding.
The second fatality was identified as a woman who was killed as she drove through flooded streets on Houston's west side, a Houston police officer said. On Friday night, an unidentified victim died in a house fire in the town of Rockport, 30 miles (48 km) north of Corpus Christi.
Amateur video showed Harvey's wrath as it ripped off roofs, snapped trees, and triggered tornadoes and flash floods, and cut power to nearly a quarter of a million people. It also curtailed a large portion of America's oil and fuel production, prompting price hikes at the pumps.
Landers Weakley, an A&M student and local brewery owner, captured video of a transformer that blew up causing a massive fire on 11th and L Street in Galveston, Texas.
