HARVEY AFTERMATH

September 13, 2017

 

HOUSTON -- Everything is bigger in Texas, including the clean up.

 

More than two weeks after Harvey flooded the Texas Gulf Coast, thousands of Houston residents are still picking up the mess the storm left behind.

 

Pat Arthur was rescued from his front porch by a boat. His home couldn't escape the storm.

 

"Everything's gone," Arthur says.

 

Twenty-three years worth of memories now thrown into a pile in his front yard -- ready for the landfill. But he says they plan on staying for awhile.

It was still raining outside when Mike Gregg started gutting his home. Everything soaked by the two feet of water had to be removed and thrown away.

 

"Everyone's fine. Everyone's healthy. And I've got a big support system," Gregg says.

 

But the hardest thing for Gregg to get rid of was his wife's piano.

 

For Edward Zilton's cleanup crews, the amount of debris seems endless.

 

"I've been here for the last two storms and this one is actually a total catastrophe, it really is," Zilton says.

 

Each truck holds nine tons of debris. The crews fill up roughly 28 trucks a day. Cleanup is expected to take months.
