Long cleanup process begins for SE Texans hit hard by Harvey

While many Southeast Texas communities still reckon with heavy flooding, high water in Winnie and Hamshire has been replaced by piles of soaked personal belongings.

Floodwaters in the two cities began receding Thursday. By Saturday, residents with flooded homes were ripping up carpet, knocking out drywall and piling their losses in their front yards.

Winnie resident Hank Sonnier had eight inches of water in his home - less than some of his neighbors - and said he and his family likely won't be able to live in their home until Christmas.
