houston - According to police chief Art Acevedo, emergency services in the Houston city of Houston have saved about 2000 people in recent days. According to him, all agents are running services of at least twelve hours a day.

The police have not yet been able to save all people in distress. Acevedo said Monday morning that about 185 emergency rescue requests were opened. Agents are not only working on rescue work. Police chief said four people were arrested while trying to plunder.

The fourth city of the United States is suffering from heavy waterfalls by the tropical storm Harvey who has lived in the area last weekend. Mayor Sylvester Turner said, according to local media, that so far, about 5,500 people have sought a safe haven in shelters. He expressed the expectation that that number of 'exponentials' will increase.
