Hurricane Harvey: Texas governor warns bill could be $180bn

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has said the bill for reconstruction after Hurricane Harvey could be as high as $180bn. He said the damage was worse than that caused by Hurricane Katrina, which devastated New Orleans in 2005.Meanwhile, the head of the government's disaster management agency has warned that flood-hit states should not rely on Washington to pick up the bill.

Brock Long said Harvey should be a wake-up call for local officials.Recovery operations are under way across Texas, and in neighbouring Louisiana, although many areas are still battling floodwater.The devastating hurricane made landfall in the state a week ago and has been blamed for at least 47 deaths. About 43,000 people are being housed in shelters
