Harvey’s Hell

The devastation happening in Texas right now is unimaginable. My social media feeds are filled with pictures from family and friends in the area who are losing their homes and other property. Thankfully, they are all safe, but the same can’t be said for some of their neighbors.

The National Hurricane Center said at least 50 inches of rain has fallen in some areas, and one meteorologist estimated that upward of 340 billion gallons of rainfall inundated the area.

Meteorologist Travis Herzog of ABC Houston station KTRK-TV estimates that 340-370 billion gallons of rainwater has fallen so far, which exceeds other major flooding events that have affected the region in recent years by over one hundred billion gallons.
