>> Soldiers and police in helicopters still rescuing thousands in Houston on Thursday, a week after Hurricane Harvey made landfall in southeast Texas. Special high water trucks rolling through flooded streets, scouring for stranded Texans. Some 32,000 people across the region have made their way to emergency shelters, including Houston's George R Brown Convention Center.
Reuters correspondent Ruthie Munoz was there.>> The 9,000 people that were here yesterday, I've seen throughout the day. Some of them are being able to go home, if not to their home, to relatives' homes. Some of them are relocating to hotels, and some of them have gone to other shelters.
But there are still people coming in, the doors at George R Brown are still open. I've met a family that came here today. Everyone tells me that this has become sort of like a family. A home away from home until they can go back to their homes, or a new home.
>> 30 year old Erica Brown and her four children were helicoptered in from east Houston.>> They gave me Pampers for the baby, wipes, food. They even brought me a tub. I'm just thankful that they have something, he came in with clothes on.>> Over 700,000 Texans have been ordered to evacuate their homes, and another close to 1 million people have fled on their own.
And made concerns that swollen reservoirs and rivers could bring new flooding, even as Harvey, downgraded to a tropical depression, heads east.
