Center meteorologist Dennis Feltgen said Tuesday that when Harvey came back to shore, "it's the end of the beginning".

"When I heard that rain coming down, I started praying, 'Lord, please don't let it flood again - I'm exhausted of going through this, ' " said Roussel, who was among 13 candidates for an open state Senate seat earlier this year.

Ron Mazier, executive director of the Lower 9th Ward Neighborhood Empowerment Network Association, said he had been exchanging text messages with friends in Houston, offering advice such as filling the upstairs bathtub in case the water supply is compromised.

"Now she's out of her home again and praying it doesn't flood again", Bradley said.

"I'm a Katrina evacuee, and I'm not going to endure the same thing that I endured with Katrina", Adamore says.

How Houston will fare post Harvey also depends a lot on how much the insurance companies pay out. "We had to go".

"If we wouldn't have left when we did, we would never have been able to make it to my mom's because every way to get to her would have been covered in water", she said.

John Livious is standing in front of a hotel, looking out as rescue trucks navigate the flooded road in.

She put her little girl in a life jacket, and turned to her husband, a strong swimmer, and said. "By traveling to the region just days after Harvey made landfall, the president raised questions among his critics on whether his presence would complicate efforts by emergency responders to help Texans still in need", reports The Associated Press. The system hung on for just about a week before undergoing explosive intensification near the Bahamas.

He used cooking New Orleans style food as a way to heal. They were among the estimated 250,000 Katrina refugees who ended up in Houston. So hopefully we can get back to Houston sooner or later and bring them up like that.

While Louisiana doesn't appear to be facing catastrophic damage on par with Harvey's destructive toll on Texas, images of the devastation in Houston are stirring up painful memories for many Hurricane Katrina survivors in Louisiana.

Interstate highway 45 is completely submerged from the effects of Harvey.

Robinson said that Katrina taught him to survive, be patient and "just kind of ride it out".

"At this time in New Orleans, they did not know it was 2,000 but there were bodies all over the place", said Mutter, who traveled to the city several times after Katrina to study the different ways in which the storm killed people. In contrast, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner advised people to stay in their homes, saying it was not feasible to completely evacuate the nation's fourth-largest city. "You gotta figure it out", he says.
