The Latest: People Treated at County Jail After Harvey Hits
HOUSTON (AP) — The city manager in Rockport, Texas, says multiple people have been taken to the county's jail for assessment and treatment after the roof of a senior housing complex collapsed.
KIII-TV reports that 10 people have been treated in Rockport since Hurricane Harvey slammed into the Gulf Coast city Friday night. The Associated Press was unable to reach an operator at the Aransas County Detention Center in Rockport just after midnight.
City manager Kevin Carruth tells the station that Rockport's historic downtown area also has seen heavy damage. He says there also are reports of damage to vehicles and roofs.
Harvey is lashing a wide swath of southeast Texas with strong winds and torrential rain as the fiercest hurricane to hit the U.S. in more than a decade.
