Flash flooding and more rain is possible in Houston, a day after record rainfall killed five people.

Meteorologists said some 17.6in (44.7cm) of rain fell on the city alone, levels that national officials said were “historic”.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has declared a state of emergency in Houston, where 70,000 people were left without power.

Rivers burst their banks in the fourth-largest US city and 1,200 people were rescued from rising floodwaters.
