Hurricane Harvey is moving towards Louisiana where it will blanket New Orleans with rain for days.

After wreaking havoc in Texas where thousands are now homeless, the tropical storm is set to continue off for another two days before it peaks on Thursday.

It is currently hovering above the ocean off the coast but may make landfall again on Wednesday, threatening to bring 46mph winds to Louisianan towns which were entirely destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Another 50 inches of rain is scheduled to fall before Harvey dissipates.

Houston is one of the worst affected cities and is, in parts, underwater. There are currently 5,000 people in shelters across Texas but that number is expected to rise.

Eleven people are feared dead. Among those killed were six members of the same family who drowned in their van as they tried to escape the rising water.

President Trump is due to arrive in Texas on Tuesday with the First Lady. His visit comes as thousands continue to seek evacuation from their swamped homes. They were seen leaving the White House early morning.

The First Lady wore a pair of towering stilettos, a bomber jacket and some stylish sunglasses for the journey.
