Flood levels are dropping across the Houston area as Harvey trudges east and continues to weaken. Five straight days of downpours dropped around 52 inches of rain in some areas, the heaviest deluge ever recorded in the continental United States from a single storm.
The death toll from the storm has risen to 35. But stores and airports are reopening, providing relief to tens of thousands of evacuees and residents.
