Harvey Hits Texas, Unleashes Major Flooding

Harvey Hits Texas, Unleashes Major Flooding

Despite its earlier demise, after rejuvinating over the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Hurricane Harvey has become a major weather maker as it unleashes historical flooding over parts of coastal Texas. Harvey began on the 17th of August as a weak tropical storm about 250 miles (~400 km) east of Barbados in the Leeward Islands. Over the next two days, Harvey continued moving steadily westward passing through the Leeward Islands as a still weak tropical storm and entered into the east central Caribbean.

Reviving Tropical Storm Harvey's Remnants Observed By GPM

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) upgraded the remnants of tropical storm Harvey to a tropical Depression on August 23, 2017 at 10:00 AM CDT (1500 UTC). Harvey became better organized and was revived after moving from Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula into the Bay of Campeche. The warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico and favorable vertical wind shear promoted the regeneration of the tropical cyclone.
