Bill Bishop, the managing editor of Houston news channel KHOU-TV, took a picture of his son standing in front of their home while it was getting battered with floodwater—and then took another photo two days later.
As the sun peaked through the clouds in Houston yesterday, it was a sign that the threat of Hurricane Harvey is beginning to recede after the city received more than 50 inches of rainfall.
The first photo shows Bishop’s son up to his waist in water—but the photo two days later shows him standing on dry (or damp, I'd imagine) ground.
The storm has claimed at least 31 casualties so far, according to The New York Times, though this number may rise. More than 30,000 residents are currently in hurricane shelters, a number that is likely to rise.
Since hitting Houston, the storm has moved into east Texas and Louisiana.
