Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey is now Tropical Storm Harvey. It remains a dangerous system because of flooding and several thunderstorms spiraling around its center. It continues to spin over South and East Texas for several additional hours and days. West Louisiana is affected, too.

The storm continues to stradle the Texas coastline, feeding off the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It's the reason why rain will come down in buckets.

An immense overabundance of water will be a significant problem for days, even weeks. Storm surge is over 6 feet. Rainfall will be measured in feet, not inches. Many models have rain totals nearing 3 feet by next Wednesday. Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana will become the Gulf of Mexico.
