Well . we got past mid June, so that's good .. nothing significant yet ... but it's coming one day .. these two storms probably have nothing to them

Water still isn't warm enough yet to cook up anything significant.

As long as the water temp is 82, storms can form and grow.

That's not what bootz said. Why would I trust the dancing sandwich over the resident know-it-all?

This thing formed fast. Classified as a depression around 5:30, and was bumped up to a TS around 7:45.

Rainmaker but not much else. Enjoy the high of 80 in July lol

I looked at a few different sites and there seem to be disagreements on "last landfall". I know Ike hit Houston in 2008 (cat 2), and I think there have been others .. no matter, this is gonna be big to the SE corner of Texas.

and within a day of the 25th anniversary of Andrew (more for us, than Texas).

It's technically correct, but it's a muddy definition. Areas have felt the affect of major hurricanes(like Matthew last year) but they technically didn't make landfall until weakening.


This storm is going to be bad though. Only Cat 3, but this could dump up to 38 inches of rain in some areas. Corpus Christi will suffer bad damage....and its almost too late to evacuate

Edit: This thing just strengthened close to Cat 4. If Harvey makes landfall as a cat 4 in TX, would be the 1st cat 4+ landfall in TX since Carla (1961) & the 1st in the US since Charley (04)

Indeed, the eye of the storm has just made landfall. The strongest hurricane to hit in 13 years.

They're already reporting that multiple buildings have collapsed in Rockport, while others have sustained bad damage, including the emergency management center which may have to be evacuated. The Euro model's newest prediction is showing up to 60' of rain in some areas over the course of this storm. This truly is a worst case scenario

My heart hurts for the people of SE Texas and the Houston area in particular. From the pictures & videos I've seen, it struck me anew how people come together when a disaster strikes. Blacks, whites, Hispanics...it doesn't matter to the folks in Texas right now. They're all, literally, in some cases, in the same boat. If the rest of the country could come together this way, without the need for a national disaster, it would be a welcoming sight.

My parents are in SE Texas. They're trying to evacuate right now. They're being told to expect another 50in of rain.

If I recall correctly, it was forecasted this would happen.

Forget the alligators:

Yes, flotillas of fire ants are a real thing that happens in Houston—and elsewhere—when it floods. This is how the clever little insects stay afloat and stay alive during their own life-threatening emergency situations. Bless them. They’re just trying to make it, like the rest of us. Even if they’re horrible little ankle-biters.

Tuesday, 2:05pm CT— Good afternoon. Another dreary day across much of the region as Harvey (finally!) begins to slowly pick up some speed and pull away. Thankfully the Houston area has seen minimal additional rains today, with most places across the hardest hit spots earlier in the week at or below one inch of new rain. Today’s hardest hit location is clearly Galveston.

It's everyone east and ENE of Houston that's getting all the rain now.

If the above link requires you have a subscription, go to Google Search and type in: before after pics houston flooding wapo
It should have the link to the WaPo pics under the Top Stories section.

Dude... that is NOT cool. I've only ever heard of flooding like this in China. What happened to Houston could almost qualify as biblical
