Houston:  Five days after slamming into the US Gulf Coast as a major hurricane, Harvey made a second landfall on Wednesday, hitting Louisiana, a state that still bears deep scars from 2005’s Hurricane Katrina.

Now a tropical storm, Harvey made landfall just west of the town of Cameron, the National Hurricane Center said, with “flooding rains” drenching parts of southeastern Texas and neighboring southwestern Louisiana.
