Harvey’s devastation from space

Texas is just beginning to recover after Harvey wreaked havoc on the state, leaving behind residential areas partially submerged in flooded waters.

New satellite images from DigitalGlobe show the extent of the catastrophic damage that the storm caused, as experts claim that flood damage alone will amount to at least $35billion, about what Katrina cost in 2005.

The stunning photos, taken from November through Wednesday, show areas outside of Houston flooded with murky waters after Harvey dumped more than 19 trillion gallons of water on the region, a stark contrast from the green land just months beforehand.

Officials said most of the flooded waters are expected to recede by the end of the weekend, as residents salvage items from soaking homes and bury loved ones as at least 47 people died because of the life-threatening floods.
