US Lower 48 sets new record for most rain within a single Tropical Cyclone

With Harvey drifting back out over the Gulf and positioned SW of the Greater Houston area, the intense and persistent rains reignited and eventually the 1978 Amelia record of 48 inches fell within the last few hours.

This map now needs updated.

New wave of intense rain overnight set a new Lower 48 rainfall benchmark.

These scenes are incredible and would break your heart! The flood from Harvey is the greatest in US history!
