ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. Secretary of State and Texas native Rex Tillerson appealed to all Americans on Tuesday morning, to keep the millions of people suffering in floods along the Texas coast "in your thought and prayers." During a photo opportunity with German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel, Tillerson also complimented Texas authorities for the "remarkable, remarkable job" they're doing in dealing with the crisis. U.S. President Donald Trump will visit Texas on Tuesday to survey the response to Tropical Storm Harvey, the first major natural disaster of his White House tenure, even as the lingering storm pushed floodwaters higher. The slow-moving storm has brought catastrophic flooding to Texas, killed at least nine people, led to mass evacuations and paralyzed Houston, the fourth most-populous U.S. city.
