Catastrophic freshwater flood event in progress Houston Metro/SE Texas

I could put so much into words what’s happening. Major flow of moistue from Tropical Storm Harvey has led to incredible rainfall totals and a devastating flood event for now ongoing in Houston and Southeast Texas. Damage is being done and lives are being lost while others are being rescued. It’s a horrible tragedy unfolding. This may very well rival HURRICANE KATRINA as one of the worst flooding disasters in US history. I do not say that lightly…but with around two FEET of rain fallen and another foot or more expected today, and more likely overnight…and tomorrow. This is simply a grotesque act of Motger Nature we are witnessing.

Follow my Twitter (@wxclimonews) or FB (Meteorologist Nick Humphrey) more constant news throughout the day. But…it’s just awful what’s happening there. Been up most of the night watching in absolute horror. Wish it would stop raining in Texas….
5 deaths this morning in Houston Metro so far from the flooding.

    1. Unfortunately yes. It is expected to drift offshore Tuesday and may restrengthen slightly before coming making a second landfall closer to Houston. The winds aren’t as important as the that the storm will remain organized enough to continue to machine gun SE Texas with tropical rainfall through at least Thursday. 😔
