While unprecedented flood waters unleashed by Harvey, one of the most destructive storms in the US, battered Texas, many on Twitter were praising the hospitality of a woman in the middle of the torrential rain.

As a correspondent for Fox 4 News presented a ground report from Galveston, a woman walked up to him on live television, handing him six cans of beer.

The correspondent, taken aback by the gesture, responded: “Thank you, that’ll be nice for after we are done covering this.”

Weather officials said parts of state are expected to receive heavy rainfall again.
