Hurricane Harvey made landfall over Texas on August 25th 2017. It was quickly labeled a Category 4 hurricane due to high winds (up to 150 mph) and 2-4 feet of rain. Harvey has caused widespread damage and flooding to communities across Texas and Louisiana. Hurricane Harvey affected many communities including Corpus Christi, Houston, Port Mansfield, Brownsville, Port O’Connor, Victoria, Galveston, Matagorda, Rockport, High Island, and Freeport.

Even as the rain and wind moves on, the region continues to suffer consequences of the destruction and loss of life.
