Hurricane Harvey hit Houston four weeks ago, and we're getting a look at some of the damage folks there are still cleaning up.

Mountains of moldy debris still line storm victims' front lawns.

Houston leaders say trucks have only removed about 5% of Harvey's wreckage.

Flood victim Michelle Frankfort said, "it's not acceptable we are trying to move forward as a city and this to me causes a health hazard."

FEMA says they've received 800,000 requests for disaster assistance.

Plus, 2,000 people are still living in shelters
The city says its updating old floodplain maps in hopes of not having as much damage if another hurricane hits.
