>> this is a landmark event, we've not seen an even like this, you cannot dream this forecast up. >> i don't know what to say. >> unlike catarina, which passed clear. we're still operating in midst of a tropical storm. >> you don't have to go very far to find people, rooftops from second story. >> people need help. >> and we're working to provide it. >> it terrifying. water coming up, whack in, and coming in. >> swift time frames that i have seen to approve disaster declaration. >> this is maybe a different
recovery process than we've seen before. >> houston is a great city, we'll come out of this stronger than ever. liz: hurricane harvey, across southeast texas, one of the worst storms in texas state history, texans. as we see mother nature, we see human nature at its past. inspiring stories of human courage and kindness, tonight weighing in former fema director michael brown, and fox news anchor shepard smith, and catarina pearson, and youtube star, trump supporter sisters diamond and silk are here, i am elizabeth mcdo donald. >> welcome to "risk & reward," president trump weighing in moments ago.
>> we're one american family, we hurt together, we struggle together. and believe me, we en dow together -- enduring it, to people of texas. and lui louisiana, we're 100% with you. i'll be visiting the impact zone tomorrow. liz: a category 4 hurricane harvey packing 130 mile an hour winds and a storm surge that local authorities said ran as high as 12 feet, it is now a tropical storm, packing rain. more than 450,000 people could seek disaster assistant. harvey is set to shatter texas state records. 25 inches of rain already. 50 inches total possibly by friday, here is the danger, harvey now could move back out over the gulf of mexico.
restrinrestrengthen then turn and wallop southeast texas again. hundreds rescued, people airlifted off of rooftops, and rescued out of cars and flooded area highways. those floodwater continues to rise. we seeing roads turn into rivers, chest-deep high water in many neighborhoods, tens of thousands of buildings damage, u.s. oil sector, heart of refining industry here, pummeled, damage estimate in billions, some areas seeing a year's worth of rain in just two day's time. but we're also seeing inspiring stories of courage. and generosity. can-do state of texas and rest of america stepping up, help from nearby louisiana, also in will i've this pact, including cajun navy coming to rescue, a volunteer network of good samaritans driving more than 4
hours from louisiana in middle of the storm, to join a rescue squad of boats to help people, it is being called texas' "dunkirk." president trump called for a state of emergency for louisiana as tropical storm packed with potential tornado is now spinning toward louisiana coastline. it is continuing to unfold, hillary, look at you, it looks like that rain continues. reporter: it is really coming down, and here is what i want to point out, right now the boats are loading up and leaving, because most of the rescue operations here in this neighborhood are coming to an end. there is a few reasons why. this sun is setting and there is not a lot of lights on these boats that would allow them to seiche 3 1/2 gate these rivers roads that turned into river, find people than out, clock is ticking for those people still in their
homes looking for a way out, one pete is headed out, and a canoe coming in, you see people walking in waist-deep water. we were here a few hours ago, where i am standing, this was about probably 4 or 5 inches high water, now it is over passed by knees that gives you a sense of amount of rainfall that has come down in the past few hours, another reason why it is so dangerous, we talked with several people who needed to be rescued, they said overnight they realized they could not get out. there was no escape, and they would need someone to come, into their neighborhood by boat to rescue hem. so, a lot of people realizing, that they are have no options other than waiting for first responders or people who have come here, from other parts of texas with their boats to rescue people. you are seeing away lot of people who taken on role as
first responders, help to get these people out of their homes into higher ground, we talked to group of two men from dallas, who said, they quit their -- well they left work, brought their boats here to did that, they had touching experiences, one woman asked them to carry her son's ashes out of the home, a lot of sentimental moments people are choosing what to leave and bring with them, it speaks to the interaction. the intimacy see as these rescuers neighbors, people from across the state, ordinary people, really taking on the role as first responders, and helping the people, these boats are being loaded up now, they are on their way. at-this-point the rain continues to pour down. harder. the sun is setting, people in this neighborhood in surrounding areas, now, have to stay where they are until someone come back when the
sunrises to rescue them, liz. liz: all right. thank you, hillary, be safe, thank you. >> harvey may force 30,000 people into shelters, total of 50 inches of rain is expected by friday. houston's george r brown convention center taking in thousands of people. >> next obam -- objective, we are to remove them, got to get them into shelters, mission will be a very heavy left. we're anticipating 30,000 people paces in shelters temporarily. liz: michael brown is a former fema director who said harvey is probably worst disaster in texas history. do you think this worse than hurricane katrina.
>> absolutely, have you fourth largest city in america, it has 25 largest gdp in world, it is equivalent to a country, in essence. you have here, you have a larger gro geograph call -- geographical area, you still have rain coming down. this diswasser i dissister is still unfolding. i think you will see hundreds of thousands without power if that is true that will take weeks, and weeks to get that power restored. and then you think -- i know people like to show photographs of water in houses up to cabinet 207 tops or something, imagine that water sitting there for five-days to dissipate and get back to gulf of mexico, that means that damage that initially occurs,
just continues to get worse and worse, it is not just for homes but also for businesses us. i think that dollar cost not only to taxpayers, but private sector costs this disaster is going to be quite frankly, astronomical. liz: you know, michael, storm victims are taking sheller at houston convention center, arriving by foot, bus and truck, texas is a story of human nature at its very best. >> absolutely, i made a come earlier to a friend of mine, who has a radio program in texas, my response was, duh it texas, i would expect, that i have family and friends in houston, that is what texans do, it is what americans do. to your point about people beginning to flood -- no pun intended. the convention center, to
mattress max furniture stores and other places, is that is sign to me that this disaster is not even nowhere near over it will continue for days and days, if this storm continues to dump water, a lot do not realize about water it takes a while to dissipate, it will take a while to get out of homes to sewer system, out of flood zones to gulf of mexico. liz: people now have to contend with all sorts of wildlife that have been flushed out of their habitats, alligators, water moccasin and fire ants what you are hearing. >> not what i'm hearing but what i know from experience. regardless how clean we think anything circumstance as, a business or a convent store that stuff that just kind of settled down on concrete will get washed into that those floodwaters, and it feeds into
the floodwaters itself. so, it may not look dirty, but it may be toxic. i have not heard reports of that, i don't want to sound alarm bells, it is a natural thing that happens with you have run off from commercial area, industrial areas, and stuff that people have in their homes that gets into water, that creates toxic water. i think it will defuse to a certain degree, but you have to be aware of it. >> michael, republican texas governor gregg abbott and democrat mayor sylvester turner are split over whether houston needed evacuations ahead of time, mr. abbott said that people should consider evacuation, but mayor turner urged people to stay. >> try to put fo forth an evacuation in a couple of days, the logistics would have been crazy, you combine that
with 6.5 million people. where are they going? decision we made was a smart one. it was in the best interest of hous houstonians. liz: such a tough call, i hear the problem hurricane rita, people stranded on the you know highways that turned into parking lot, then flooding came in, problem with people in their cars, what do you think of call made? >> well, they are in middle of responding, i don't want to second guess, i will tell you, look, liz, i will be honest, i think what should have been done a stronger communication message that look we have national hurricane center, national weather service, both using i think even euro meteorologistists using term catastrophic in terms of ai amount of rain full and flooding potential.
i think it was a mistake to say, hurricane center is saying this is going to be ca catastrophic rain and flooding, here is our suggestion. it is thursday, it friday. take a long weekend. go see relatives in dallas or san antonio or austin, take a trip to dallas or oklahoma city. because, i think people would agree right now, who are stuck in their homes, they would rather be stuck in a hotel or a grandma's house in dallas, than in the convention center. i just think that messaging should have been look, every disasterrer over evacuation model that i have studied always ends up a disaster itself, but what you can do is you can encourage people to make the right choice, to leave. by explaining to them that look, we're a city of 2. some million people, there are 6 million in the area, if this is has ba bad as everyone
says, you are not going to want to be here, if you understand where you live, if you live close to a flooding area, if you are here during tropical storm alison and you saw what happened, my advice would be take a long weekend, then decide to welcome da -- to come back. liz: oil markets, pricing out tropical storm harvey, refining industry hit hard. u.s. crude pricing drop 3%, settling about $46 a barrel, but gasoline prices surge to 2 year highs, harvey knocked out several refineries. checking airports, flights are halted at both houston airports, harvey cancellation above 5,000,ic techin etending too tomorrow, coming up a houston small business
owner, watched his store get looted during hurricane halfy. >> and also reports of price gouging on necessity, such as water, milk and bread by texas merchants, we'll tell you how much they are charging. but first louisiana's cajun navy forged after hurricane katrina, headed to texas to help harvey rescues, coming up. rethink what's possible. rethink your allergy pills. flonase sensimist allergy relief helps block 6 key inflammatory substances with a gentle mist. most allergy pills only block one. and 6 is greater than one. flonase sensimist. ♪ is everything ok?adt, i could hear crackling in the walls, and my mind went totally blank.

with their old fashion bass boats, flat bottom boats looking for people in low lying areas. a lot of rescue teams are there people have to be visible. and they have to be -- if they for a house, they have to get on the roof, be where a boat going by can find them or a helicopter can see them. liz: we have hsc-7, dusty dogs. they are out of naval station in norfolk, virginia. they responded to texas. are you seeing similar action like that? >> we are. it is very encouraging, heart warming to me, as a residence here of houston, texas to see people from all over. we have even boston has sent resources down to houston to help in the rescue, recovery,

>> that is what we need to focus on, not this group beating up other people for god knows what. i hope they are deemed a terrorist group, they are terrorists in our country, they do not have the right to go about policing free speech. >> that is right. liz: that is a good point, they attacked police too, they were wearing black masks, that is against the lo rules in berkeley, and they say they are there to defeat hatred. >> they are violent, any time you have to hide your face, you are doing something criminally and violent. they must be stopped. they must be stopped. it is time for the left to stop giving them the hip, hip hurray, time for someone to stoop deeming this group as okay for our country. this group is about
destruction, we have to stop them, one way or another. or we won't know our country. >> you can't bring hate to hate to stop hate that never works. liz: the left is silent on this, they talk about free speech, but this group is clearly against free speech and tolerance, where is media outrage on this. >> that is how they do? they go out, they throw a dagger, then they run and hide, last week they were trading -- tradin praising this group, this group is full of hate, this group is the same as kkk and white supremacist, one wears white hoods and they wear black hoods. >> what should police do let violent rule. >> absolutely not, arrest these people, charge these people, and put stiff charges on them, we cannot have 99 t
anyone to come out, manipulate to try to dominate. liz: do you think it will get worse. >> it will if they don't stop it, if they don't like what you say, i heard a prayer group of the there i heard some people in the prayer group got hurt. you mean to tell me, people can't go and pray any more with without this group, trying to stop that, they don't have the right to police nobody in this country. what the police should do is stand up and arrest them one by one. and stick some charges on them to stop this foolishness in our country. >> make an example out of them. liz: diamond and sil silk we love having you on. >> thank you. liz: president trump and first lady traveling to texas tomorrow, we'll bring that you story, when it happens tomorrow, all w all detail. wild get twe'll get to story of north korea firing a missile over japan that is
