ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) US. President Donald Trump arrived in Texas on Tuesday to survey the response to devastating Tropical Storm Harvey, the biggest natural disaster of his White House tenure, as officials in Houston struggled to manage the record-breaking rains. Texas Governor Greg Abbott said Trump and his administration were in constant contact with him ten days before Tropical Storm Harvey hit Texas. "What I've learned is we can count on the President of the United States and his staff for helping Texas," Abbott said. The slow-moving storm has brought catastrophic flooding to Texas, killed at least nine people, led to mass evacuations and paralyzed Houston, the fourth most-populous U.S. city. Some 30,000 people were expected to seek emergency shelter as the flooding entered its fourth day.
