As Saturday morning arrived on the Texas Gulf Coast, people awoke to considerable damage left behind by Hurricane Harvey.

Images show damage to several buildings in the city of Rockport, which is located 30 miles northeast of Corpus Christi. The city took the brunt of the Category 4 winds. Corpus Christi also saw significant damage with photos showing houses that caught fire during the storm. Buildings and homes in Katy, near Houston, were demolished after tornadoes touched down.

We will update this post with the latest images of damage from Hurricane Harvey, which was downgraded to a Category 1 storm but with warnings of “catastrophic flooding” to come.
