According to CNN, Harvey is gaining strength again. It is expected to tear through some districts of Louisiana where a state of emergency was declared.
Texas was battered by the hurricane Harvey overnight into Saturday, which became the strongest US hurricane in 12 years. In 2005, Category 5 hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana’s coastline and nearly destroyed New Orleans.
