Tropical Storm Harvey continues to do more damage than officials can keep up with.
With up to three feet of rain already on the ground in areas around Houston, officials were forced to start releasing water from two dams overnight, earlier than they'd planned. And forecasters say another two feet of rain is possible in the area. Officials say even the controlled releases may not be enough if the rain doesn't relent, and if the dams were to fail, half of Houston would be underwater.

Meanwhile, celebrities are wasting no time taking to social media to show their support for Houston and the other areas impacted by the storm. While some took to the Twittersphere to share their thoughts and send their love, others - led by Kevin Hart - are opening up their wallets.
