Hurricane Imelda compared to Harvey


How Imelda’s Prolific Rain, Flooding Compares to Harvey in East Texas. By Jonathan Erdman – Weather.com

At a Glance

  • Imelda has dumped prolific rainfall in parts of eastern Texas.
  • Some areas have picked up 20 to 42 inches of rain.
  • In a few areas, the flooding has been described as worse than that during Harvey.
  • Harvey’s record-setting rain was much more widespread than Imelda.
  • Imelda pounded part of Texas with rainfall measured in feet, not inches… Compare to the then record-smashing rain from Hurricane Harvey two years ago.

Vidor, Texas, Police Chief Rod Carroll told The Weather Channel that flooding in the town was “worse during this storm than it was during Hurricane Harvey.”
