When Hurricane Harvey touched the Texas coast, one of many Houston businesses was taken advantage of when dozens of people robbed one man's store.

Samir Ebrahim, the store owner, posted on Facebook the surveillance video saying he was unable to get to his store due to the weather and road conditions.

Security footage showed people inside and out of the store stealing various items.

Ebrahim said he made numerous calls to the police only to be told that they were unable to respond.

Emergency officials in Houston have advised residents to not call 9-1-1 unless their lives are in danger.
