Photos taken in Southern Texas the past couple of days show the extreme devastation facing the people who remained there as Hurricane Harvey passed through.

Victims can be seen walking through high waters, carrying children and what belongings the could salvage. Power is out, homes and businesses are destroyed .... it's a truly challenging time for these Texans.

Go here to see pictures taken during the storm and now, as flood waters continue rising in the region.
