Harvey hits Louisiana after leaving thousands homeless in Houston

LAKE CHARLES, La./HOUSTON (Reuters) – Tropical Storm Harvey slogged across southeastern Texas and into Louisiana on Wednesday, sending more people fleeing for shelter after hitting the U.S. energy hub of Houston with record rains and flooding that drove tens of thousands from their homes.

The slow-moving storm has killed at least 22 people and sent more than 32,000 to shelters since coming ashore on Friday near Corpus Christi, Texas, as the most powerful hurricane to hit Texas in more than 50 years. On Wednesday it went on to swamp a stretch of coast from Port Arthur, Texas, to Lake Charles, Louisiana.
