“Catastrophic and life-threatening” floods have hit the city in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, with thousands evacuated or forced to flee their homes. The National Weather Service is reporting five people have been killed in the storms.

Texas Houston Flood 2017: Houston Hit by ‘Catastrophic Flooding’ from Hurricane Harvey, Hundreds Rescued. Hundreds of water rescues were underway in Houston early Sunday.

Houston is being inundated with “unprecedented” devastating flooding after ferocious Hurricane Harvey set in over southeast Texas this weekend, dumping torrential rain on the city, with no end in sight.

ABC News meteorologists are forecasting historic rainfall totals up to 50 inches by Wednesday.

Heavy rain bands are expected to continue to move in over Houston overnight, which will continue the catastrophic and life-threatening flash-flood emergency in the area.

The flooding comes after the hurricane left at least three people dead after it bashed the Texas coast. Buildings and parts of communities are submerged and, in Houston, there were more than 1,000 calls for rescues and people were forced to their rooftops.

“At this time it is unknown if the subject passed away from health conditions or due to drowning, there was high water in the area of Walmart last night,” the La Marque Police Department said in a statement.

Another person who died was in Houston, after a woman was “swept away,” according to Art Acevedo, Houston’s chief of police.

“Sadly, we have lost one female member of our community who encountered floodwaters in her vehicle, got out and was swept away,” Acevedo said.

Officials said another person died in the coastal city of Rockport.

Upward of 340 billion gallons of rainfall

The National Hurricane Center said at least 50 inches of rain has fallen in some areas, and one meteorologist estimated that upward of 340 billion gallons of rainfall inundated the area.

Meteorologist Travis Herzog of ABC Houston station KTRK-TV estimates that 340-370 billion gallons of rainwater has fallen so far, which exceeds other major flooding events that have affected the region in recent years by over one hundred billion gallons.

Separately, officials announced two forthcoming reservoir releases that will likely impact thousands of homes in the Houston area, they said. Water from the Addicks and Barker reservoirs will be released early this week in an effort to mitigate flooding risks, officials with the U.S. Army Corps said.
