Thousands of people are trapped on their rooftops in flooded Houston and are desperately pleading for help after Hurricane Harvey left much of America’s fourth largest city underwater.

Many residents have turned to social media with heart-breaking pleas for help as the Houston police department asked any civilians with boats to join them and assist with the more than 6,000 calls for rescues.

The storm has already dumped a historic 11 trillion gallons of water on Texas – with another 27 inches of rain falling so far and another 23 inches expected to come within the next few days.

Experts said the aftermath of the catastrophic hurricane could equal the level of destruction of Katrina in 2005.
The storm has claimed the lives at least five people and FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, revealed it would take the area years to recover from the storm which is the worst this decade.
