Tropical Depression to Dump 18 Inches of Rain on Parts of Texas Gulf Coast

Sep 18, 2019

In Texas, Tropical Depression Imelda made landfall south of Houston Tuesday, bringing flash floods with up to 18 inches of rain forecast for parts of the region. It’s the region’s worst rainstorm since Hurricane Harvey dumped an estimated 33 trillion gallons of water on Texas two years ago, with up to 52 inches of rain in parts of the Gulf Coast — the most rain ever recorded in a U.S. storm. Meanwhile, over the Atlantic Ocean, Hurricane Humberto has strengthened to a strong Category 3 storm, with officials in Bermuda issuing warnings ahead of its expected arrival Wednesday night.
