officials estimate harvey damaged or destroyed 100,000 homes.some experts say the cleanup will be even more expensive than hurricane katrina. katrina caused 118 billion dollars worth of damage.harvey's impact is so big the white house plans to push for two disaster relief packages.homeland security advisor tom bossert. "we'll make the first request based on the information we have now, then we'll come back here for a second supplemental request when we have a better picture for congress to consider" but getting disaster relief through congress isn't always easy. lawmakers could tie disaster relief money to other, less popular bills. but presidential counselor kelly anne conway tells us the president doesn't want a fight. "we've seen in the past legislation where disaster relief is tied up with other matters, the president does not want that, he wants people to get the money as quickly as possible"congress returns to work on tuesday.but it's not yet clear when a vote on disaster relief would happen or exactly how much money would ultimately be approved. in washington, i'm mark meredith.

9:17 pm
hurricane harvey get a better response from the government, and not fall prey to fraudulent contractors, which she says descended on new orleans like locust after the waters receded. (diane evans, displaced by katrina) when you got a little bit of money you hire a contractor and they halfway do it or take your money and disappear. they weren't from new orleans. the government didn't regulate them when you complain and say these people rip me off nothing was done to them so they acted with impunity defrauding people and scamming folks and people had no recourse(vicki) the effects of hurricane katrina is still visable in new orleans, especially its demographic make up. there are 100-thousand fewer african americans living there than before it hit 12 years ago.
