The army corps of engineers, the U.S. plans to begin discharge of water from the two reservoirs in the river Buffalo Bayou, reports the associated Press.

According to the Agency, a gradual release of water from reservoirs, the Barker and Addicks will start on Monday morning. According to the commander of the engineering troops of Galveston Lars Zetterstrom, this measure will prevent uncontrolled flooding of the Central part of Houston and the Houston ship channel.

Zetterstrom noted that the water level in the reservoir rises to ten centimeters per hour.

The national weather service (NWS) reported that tropical storm «Harvey» has led to catastrophic flooding in one of the largest cities in the U.S. state of Texas Houston on Sunday. According to them, in some parts of the Houston rainfall is more than 76 centimetres, and in the near future this number will increase.

«Harvey» became the most powerful hurricane in the U.S. over the past 12 years, since the country in 2005 was hit by the storm Katrina, which led to the flooding of New Orleans city in Louisiana.
