Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas on August 25, as a category 4 hurricane. This is the first category 4 hurricane to make landfall in the US since 2004. The next week’s extensive rainfall of over 40 inches has caused even more widespread destruction. The word Catastrophic has become synonymous with Harvey.
