Hurricane Harvey (2017)
Houston, Texas

US Flood Snapshot

Devastating flood events have impacted nearly every US region from varied meteorological sources, including extreme precipitation and storm surge. Hurricane Harvey (2017) brought record-breaking precipitation to the Houston area and became one of the costliest tropical cyclones in US history (second only to Katrina) due to extensive flooding. In addition to the extreme rainfall, storm surge flooding impacted much of the Texas coast, with some areas experiencing
inundation levels of up to 10 feet. The KCC US Flood Reference Model considers all possible flooding sources to completely capture the full effects of these events.
