Hurricane Harvey dumped more rain than Hurricane Hiko did in 1950 in Hawaii. They have mountainous terrain, which is more likely to see heavy rain.

If Houston did have mountains, we could easily see over 100 inches of rain! :shock: :o

Last night the Team that inspired us and took our minds away from the disaster we faced in the days following the flood waters, our Houston Astros are World Champions. #Earn History #Houston Strong

I read the report. Quite a read. The weak stationary cold front contributed to the widespread heavy rains. That is a similar setup with Amelia in 1978. It also possible that up to 70 inches of rain fell! :shock: :o

USGS releases Post Harvey Inundation Report. The report is detailed and mind blowing regarding what we endured last August.

WOW...so hard for me to read this
I remember working at GCOEM and hearing
"could be 70 inches of rain...who will believe this?"


Still people suffering today...
