Death toll from Harvey rises to 31

Authorities say they have confirmed six more deaths from Harvey, bringing the toll to at least 31.

Harris County - which is home to flood-ravaged Houston - confirmed the additional deaths Wednesday night and said they still needed to do autopsies on another eight people to see if their deaths were storm-related.

The deaths announced Wednesday included a man who stepped on live electrical wire in floodwaters and an evacuee who was found unresponsive on a charter bus. Most of the other deaths were drownings.
