The US city of Houston has declared a night-time curfew as it battles the impact of Hurricane Harvey, the BBC reports.

The storm has dumped record rainfall, leaving large parts of the city underwater, homes destroyed and over 20 people reported dead.

Houston mayor Sylvester Turner said the curfew was needed to head off looting in America’s fourth most populous city.

President Donald Trump visited Texas on Tuesday to survey the damage brought by Harvey, calling the storm “epic”.
