As Harvey’s misery continues to multiply, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott called for a statewide day of prayer Sunday. Vice President Mike Pence traveled with Abbott to Rockport, Texas, on Thursday, where Harvey made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane nearly one week ago. Officials have attributed at least 30 deaths to Harvey, but they expect that toll to rise. Rescue crews are still pulling people from floodwaters in and around Port Arthur and Beaumont, where residents remain without drinking water.
