NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFD-TV) Harvey is no longer a hurricane, but its life-threatening rains continue along the Gulf coast. The National Weather service calls the flooding "unprecedented," and warns that the situation could become more dire if the forecast for 50 or more inches of rain comes true. 

Much of Houston, the nation's fourth largest city, is under several feet of water. But it's not only people in the big city who are searching for higher ground. Ranchers and livestock owners in the region have had a difficult time getting their herds moved to safety.

Texas A&M University is setting up “animal sheltering sites” around the state and is in the process of assessing the damage while planning emergency feed and water deliveries.
 
Experts say that two-thirds of southeast Texas’ cotton crops are still in the field. Many worry that a once promising crop will be swept away in the floodwaters. There are already several reports of bin collapses at grain elevators as they continue to battle high winds and water.
