The heroic response by the Texas Military and other first responders to Hurricane Harvey, a category 4 cyclone, that made its first landfall on August 25, 2017 around 30 miles northeast of Corpus Christi, Texas near Rockport. Then for the next four days unleashed more than 40 inches of rain as the system slowly meandered over eastern Texas and adjacent waters, causing catastrophic flooding.
With peak accumulations of 60.58 inches, Harvey is the wettest tropical cyclone on record in the United States. The resulting floods caused by Hurricane Harvey inundated hundreds of thousands of homes, displaced more than 30,000 people, and prompted more than 17,000 rescues.
Hurricane Harvey became the costliest tropical cyclone on record, inflicting nearly $200 billion in damage, primarily from widespread flooding in the Houston metropolitan area.
