Hurricane Harvey Hurricane Harvey made landfall near Rockport, Texas on Aug. 25, 2017 as a Category 4 Hurricane with winds of 130 mph. Harvey meandered around for days as a weakening hurricane and tropical storm which dropped up to 52 inches of rain in parts of southeast Texas and broke all rainfall totals from any tropical cyclone in the continental U.S. in records dating to 1950. Harvey's flooding has caused one of the worst weather disasters in U.S. history, with a price tag that will amount to billions of dollars. The Harris County Flood Control District estimated 70 percent of Harris County was flooded by at least 1.5 feet of water, with an estimated 136,000 flooded structures in the county alone.
