Hurricane Harvey slammed into the Gulf Coast of Texas late Friday night as a Category 4 storm, and, since making landfall near Corpus Christi, has dumped record rainfall on Houston and the surrounding areas. A full-blown catastrophe is underway there as tens of thousands fled the area, and thousands of those who didn’t evacuate have been rescued by emergency responders and volunteers. Harvey, now a tropical storm, has dropped an estimated 11 trillion gallons of rain on Texas, and much more is on the way, particularly for Houston, the nation’s fourth-largest city, which is expected to shatter all-time rainfall records.
