"NASA's Johnson Space Center remains closed, but the Mission Control Center is operational and fully capable of supporting the International Space Station from Houston", the statement said.

Certainly, UK-based financial groups have decided they can not wait for the government to negotiate its exit from the bloc. Davis said on Monday this week's talks were all about " driving forward the technical discussions across all the issues".

Hurricane Harvey has been downgraded to a tropical storm, but continues to generate "a tremendous amount of rainfall over areas including Houston", according to the JSC emergency website. "Unless you are mission essential, please stay off the road and stay safe", the website post said. Eight deaths have now been reported as a result of the storm, with as many as 30,000 people expected to leave the area due to flooding.

The storm made landfall Friday night near Rockport, Texas, as a strong Category 4 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 130 miles per hour.

Aboard the space station on Saturday, astronaut Jack Fischer tweeted, "Houston, we have a hurricane".
