Harvey continued to pummel Texas during the early hours of Sunday morning, dropping nearly two feet of rain on Houston overnight and causing dire, and deadly, flash floods.

Officials in Houston said early Sunday that a woman was found dead by her vehicle, believed to have been trapped during a flood. As midnight local time struck, police and rescue workers continue to plea with residents to stay indoors and not attempt to travel flooded roadways.

“There’s flooding all over this city,” Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said in a livestream video early Sunday morning. “We have one fatality, and a potential second fatality from the flood waters out here.”

By 4:30 a.m. Central time, the National Weather Service had recorded 20 inches of rain in Houston, as warnings for flash flooding and tornadoes remained in place for a large swath of the state.

“We’re urging people to stay off of the streets,” Gary Norman, a spokesman for the city’s emergency management system, told The Post just before 5 a.m. Central time. “We’re still very much in rescue mode.”
