Hurricane Harvey has rolled over the Texas Gulf coast leaving a trail of destruction in its wake.

Homes and businesses have been destroyed, and hundreds of thousands of people have been left without power.

The mammoth system has now weakened to a Category 1 storm, but still poses a danger with its 125-kph winds.
