The death toll from Hurricane Harvey in southeastern Texas' Harris County, home to Houston, has risen to 39 as the floodwaters from the storm begin to recede.

Meteorologist Jeff Lindner said Clear Creek, Texas, received the most rainfall -- 120 centimeters.

Immigrants

As Harris County residents contemplate the daunting task of rebuilding their lives, one group of people has emerged with a special set of concerns. Immigrants, who are in the country illegally, are afraid that if they apply for help they will be arrested. Outreach workers have been deployed to reassure them that they will not be detained when they seek help for dealing with the aftermath of Harvey.

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner said he would personally represent anyone arrested on immigration violations after seeking help.

Cesar Espinosa, executive director of Immigrant Families and Students in the Struggle said Turner's statement was a "big deal" for immigrants. Espinosa said "When they hear it from an official, they say,'OK, now we believe it.'"

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has said it is "not conducting immigration enforcement operations in the affected area."

Housing

Thousands of people in shelters in Harris County have lost everything, including their homes. Harris Country FEMA director Tom Fargione said his agency's priority now is to relocate people who have lost their homes into some form of temporary housing.

"This is a tremendous disaster in terms of size and scope," Fargione said.

Chemical plant

Explosions and fires at the Arkema chemical plant in Crosby, Texas, led to an evacuation of the town.

The facility manufactures organic peroxides. Plant officials said all week that the blasts were inevitable and much of the area had already been cleared of people.

Fifteen Harris County sheriff's deputies called to the plant were hospitalized for smoke inhalation.

FEMA called the chemicals from the plant "incredibly dangerous." But Arkema said there is little anyone can do but let the fires burn themselves out.

Also, Harvey knocked out the pumps delivering fresh water in Beaumont, Texas. The lack of clean drinking water has forced one Beaumont hospital to evacuate patients and another to shut down except for emergency cases.
