Devastating Houston flooding to get worse

From Morning Report, 8:41 am on 30 August 2017

Officials in Houston are expecting flooding in the south of the city to get worse after a levee breach overnight. The death toll as a result of the floods now stands at nine. Around 6,000 people have been rescued and the city's mayor Sylvester Turner is on the hunt for a much larger evacuation centre - large enough to cater for up to 30,000 people. Houston reporter Andrew Schneider joins us to describe the scene.
