If there's one good thing to come out of Hurricane Harvey, it's the way people are coming together in the wake of such devastation and loss.
Even businesses are getting in on the feel-goodness by offering their products and services for free to assist victims of the flood.
All of the positive responses people are having to the disaster is enough to restore one's faith in humanity. And just when you thought it couldn't get any better, this CNN reporter went and did something absolutely incredible.
That's right. He and his crew stopped a live broadcast to pull a man out of his sinking truck.
And even though it's easy to write it off as common human decency, the quick response time, and the fact that the utter lack of hesitation was all caught on camera, deserves some respect.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott said about 250 roads and motorways had been closed as a result of flooding:
"We are dealing with a triangle of ongoing rain, including Houston, Victoria and Corpus Christi cities," he added.
"We will continue receiving incredibly heavy rain."
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner urged residents not to call emergency services unless their life is in danger. "Don't get on the road. Don't assume this storm is over," he added. Officials in Harris County went on to ask people who own boats to help with rescues.
At least eight people are believed to have died as a result of Hurricane Harvey, with a record 30 inches of rain falling on the city of Houston, leaving highways totally submerged by water. The heavy rains are expected to continue into the week, with Harvey set to pick up more water from the Gulf of Mexico before heading inland once again.
