Astros, Rangers to travel to Dallas instead of Houston

"First and foremost, our thoughts and best wishes are with our neighbors in South Texas, and of course with our friends and family here in South Louisiana as Hurricane Harvey draws near", LSU said in a statement. "So we will just ride it out and see what happens".

Instead of flying back to Houston, the team will instead head to Dallas. "Would there be sufficient support services to host a football game, staffing and things like that?"

Harvey, forecast to be a Category 3 hurricane by the time it makes landfall around midnight Friday, is being called a "life-threatening storm" with winds topping 115 miles per hour and the potential for up to 35 inches of rain in some areas.

Rescue workers in Houston renewed search efforts Sunday morning for residents trapped in their homes by Tropical Storm Harvey's rising floodwaters. "It's a tough deal, hurricane season, this time of the year". "I just know we are headed to Dallas".

The NFL's Texans flew to Dallas after their preseason game Saturday in New Orleans instead of returning home and have said they'll stay there until conditions improve enough for them to come back to Houston.

While Hinch knows there is interest in when and where the Astros will play, he was quick to point out that they're far more anxious about what the storm has done to Houston than anything related to baseball. "Hopefully it passes up".

"I know my house is sitting on cinder blocks at home, so I'm fine there", Savage said. More than 2 feet of rain has fallen so far on Houston.

"Right now I'm in camp mode, and that's really the only thing that I have been focused on", Banjo said.

Two people were reportedly killed in flooding in Houston, raising the death toll from Harvey to three, according to The Weather Channel. "But if they called Wednesday at noon (I'm) sure could find way".
