a sense of the flights to be canceled, the cruise ships that have to go back out to sea. there's a lot to sort through. >> reporter: there is a lot, juju. here in houston it's been raining all day and into the night. not expectation the main rain to happen until tomorrow. more than 130 flights were canceled between houston and corpus christi's flights. we just got word that corpus christi's airport is closed and likely will not reopen o until monday. something else to ksh. experts say harvey will affect gas prices. more than 45% of u.s. refining areas are off coast. we could be looking at significant increases from five cents to 15 yents per gallon. as for houston area, harvey is very reminiscent of tropical
storm allison. it devastated 24 area, destroying tens of thousands of homes, jumping three -- dumping three feet of rain in some spots. killing 23 people. sints then, the city has spent nearly $1 million to shore up the bayous that overfroed in 2001. so far in houston, the mayor saying there is no need to evacuate at this time. juju? >> victor, thanks for that. victor is in houston. kate, you pointed out that houston even with minimal rainfall has a severe threat of flooding. >> that's right. it's extreme there. the bayous have a problem it's important to remember that nine out of ten deaths in hurricanes come from water. either on land where you have flash flooding, or they come from storm surge. >> it's important to point out tonight as we're facing the eye of this storm.
thanks, kate. we're going to turn now to the nation's capital. this is president trump's first major natural disaster that he's facing. the federal response already under way. we're going to go to abc's gloria rivera who can talk about all that. gloria? >> reporter: here in washington we expected to be covering solely the federal response to the storm but the president has delivered two more headlines. let's start with harvey. the president is updating with twitter followers through the night, tweeting that his administration is fully engaged with open lines and to those in the path, america is with you. he signed a disaster proclamation that at the request of the texas government to unleash the full force of government help. this makes federal to recovery expected to have a large bill. that news came just before 10:00
p.m. local time. marking the first test in how well this administration will handle the storm, how effective it can be in an emergency, and speaking of effective, this president hack multi-tasking since the storm started. about 15 minutes after that news broke -- you see him going to camp david -- again o on twitter from camp david the president announced that he's granted a full pardoned to controversial arizona sheriff ash paea. he early and outspoken supporter of the president. the two closely aligned in support of building a wall on the border with mexico. now there was quick backlash to that from washington all over arizona, john mccain says that
pardon undermines trumps claim to respect the rule of law. that is a big headline. but it's not all. before the night was over the president released a presidential memorandum directing the pentagon to ban transgender people from joining the military. that directs department of defense to stop related treatments. it comes on the same day in his weekly address the president said every person who puts on the uniform makes the country proud. we'll be followingnes. >> a lot of headlines. a lot of news to absorb. president trump said he may visit texas as early as next week. >> he has. if you look back over history, hurricane katrina comes to mind. president bush took a lot of heat for not going to the area. it was several days in hurricane katrina until vice president at the time dick cheney arrived on
the scene. the president saying he will go to texas sounds very good coming from the white house. of course, many of the people there, a presidential visit would have a great significance. it may cause a headache for all of the responders on the ground there, all of the lodge i that go into keeping the president safe and getting him in and out of the area, all evening, this storm expected to go on and on and on. so that news from the white house, we'll see what comes of it. but you're right, the president again saying he'll get to the region as soon as he can. juju? >> thanks for that reporting from d.c. kailt, final thoughts on the storm as we look at this trail? >> we see land. we've seen a secondary landfall first on the barrier islands and then on the mainland here. this is not over. this is not landfall and the storm is over. we'll likely see fairly often with storms, this is into next wednesday that we watch this
meander around south texas. this is one to watch. if you're living in the area be prepared for waters to rise tnt. flash flooding is a real risk. wow, all that rain false at the same time. >> you mentioned the speed of the wins. some of those are equivalent to tornadoes, you were saying? >> yes, a low-end tornado could be 90 miles an hour. the max sustained winds in hash very is 130 miles an hour. we're hearing reports of people potentially trapped in buildings. >> it is clearly life threatening. it is a major potential disaster facing our country. we're going to return to program, which on the west coast will be a live edition of kboit nightline" we'll begin our coverage at 5:00 in the morning with a special edition of good morning america.

remote controlled delta wing-style aircraft. >> cool. >> watch this flight get a bit rocky. >> oh, no. you musn't. >> back up, back up. >> and the laziest cat award goes to this one. >> she can't even get up to play. she's like, the ball has to come to me or it's not going anywhere. >> the struggle is real. >> not lazy, just bored. new hom. where you can compare multiple quote options online and choose what's right for you. woah. flo and jamie here to see hqx. flo and jamie request entry. slovakia. triceratops. tapioca. racquetball. staccato. me llamo jamie. pumpernickel. pudding. employee: hey, guys! home quote explorer. it's home insurance made easy. password was "hey guys."

control plane. they've got a great view over this reservoir you can see they have the mechanics of the reservoir, dipped down underneath. barnstorming a little bit. look at that mirror finish on that reservoir. >> you can flip the shot. >> you could. and that is where the problem comes in. they're not up there alone. that delta wing down below is similar to what we're flying with here. they're in a nice formation flight as they're going up and around. they're coming for another pass across that glassy, smooth almost mirror-like finish on that lake. >> it must not be a lick of wind for it to be that. >> maybe it's even lower. fly right into the great blue yonder. >> back up, back up, back up. >> oh. >> you can just see, oh, it's beautiful in front of you. >> that must have been it. >> the cool part about this is we've got the point of view

together. >> what's amazing is how you see it putting the lines in, how it's connecting everything. it knows innately how to put it together. >> this is a demonstration of why spiders have to build their own places, have to catch their own food. and then there's the common house cat, which purposefully sums up humans on mondays. >> that's garfield. >> she can't even get up to play. she's like the ball has to come to me or it's not going an has been overfed. >> that's the laziest cat i've ever seen in my life. >> the cat is like, i don't even want to get up to play. >> not lazy, just bored. >> pathetic life. >> batter up. eric the electric is up. last time we saw him he was eating that nine pound burger challenge. what are we doing up? >> the batter up pancake
