"Catastrophic" flooding in the US state of Texas is only expected to worsen in coming days as waters rise following a storm of historic proportions, reports say.

A record 75cm of rain has already fallen on the city of Houston in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, turning roads into rivers.

But forecasters say the total rainfall could nearly double later this week.

US President Donald Trump has promised swift action to help those affected. He is due to visit Texas today (29).

More than 3,000 people have been rescued in and around Houston, the fourth-largest city in the US, where about 6.6m people live in the metropolitan area. Helicopters have plucked victims from rooftops.
