Texas Flooding Breaks all Records – Rainfall Totals Could Exceed 50 Inches…

The National Weather Service said Sunday the flooding in the Houston Texas area was “unprecedented” and its impacts are “unknown & beyond anything experienced.” Houston officials now looking for anyone with a boat to help search and rescue efforts. Additionally, Galveston Texas officials are looking for anyone with flat bottom boats to rescue people.

    We are 70 miles north of Houston in San Jacinto County. Yesterday at 2 pm we dumped 4 inches from our rain gauge.
    We have now received 10 1/2 inches more of rain totaling 14 1/2 inches in 2 days but 10 1/2 in less than 12 hours. Numerous tornado watches .

    We are fine .. thank God.

    Tropical Storm Harvey Discussion Number 29
    NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL092017
    1000 AM CDT Sun Aug 27 2017

    Harvey continues to meander over southeastern Texas, where it
    is producing catastrophic and life-threatening flooding rainfall.
    NWS radars show that bands of deep convection continue to develop
    over the northwestern Gulf of Mexico and train over portions of
    southeastern Texas, including the Houston/Galveston metropolitan
    area. Rainfall amounts greater than 20-25 inches have already been
    reported and flash flood emergencies and warnings have been issued
    by local National Weather Service offices for a large portion of
    southeastern Texas. Additional rainfall amounts of 15 to 25 inches
    are expected over the next several days, and the NOAA Weather
    Prediction Center is now forecasting isolated storm total amounts of
    50 inches. These historic rainfall amounts will exacerbate the
    already dire and life-threatening situation.

    Surface observations of winds 30-35 kt within a band of convection
    over the western Gulf of Mexico and along the coast of Texas support
    an initial intensity of 35 kt. The latest track guidance show
    Harvey moving slowly southeastward for the next 24 to 36 hours and
    the center is likely to move very close to the coast, or even
    offshore, between 24-48 hours. After that time, Harvey is expected
    to begin a northward motion which should take it inland over eastern
    Texas later in the period. Since a large portion of the circulation
    is expected to remain over water during the next several days,
    Harvey is maintained as a tropical storm through 72 hours. However,
    the strongest winds are likely to occur over the Gulf waters.

    Key Messages:

    1. Ongoing catastrophic and life-threatening flooding will continue
    across southeastern Texas. Additional rainfall accumulations of 15
    to 25 inches are expected, with isolated storm totals as high as 50
    inches, through Friday. Please heed the advice of local officials.
    Do not attempt to travel if you are in a safe place, and do not
    drive into flooded roadways. Refer to products from your local
    National Weather Service office and the NOAA Weather Prediction
    Center for more information on the flooding hazard. A summary of
    rainfall totals compiled by the Weather Prediction Center can be

      I used to be a Salvation Army soldier, church member, and worked with disaster relief in the Midwest. Be careful donating to them too. If you use the national hotline, text, or website options it goes in the general disaster relief coffers and more than likely is turned into money making investments. Give to the locally effected corps, churches, and DESIGNATE OR EARMARK IT for local disaster relief. Then legally the money cannot be used for anything else. If you are not local to Texas, use the Salvation Army.org website to look up local Texas corps offices addresses to send donations. After the 1997 Red River Valley in MN/SD/ND the monies that came in were “invested” and 2 years later all the Corps centers in the 13 states of the Central Territory in the USA were given debt forgiveness grants. In kind material goods were taken from local staging warehouses, taken to regional warehouses “for later use or needs,” leaving disaster workers and impacted families without needed supplies such as rubber boots, cleaning chemicals, and nutritional supplements, etc. I don’t support Walmart with my shopping, but their warehouse and trucking personnel were God sent angels during that 1997 flood fight and kicked butt setting up and supplying distribution warehouses.

    Thinking of this from a thermodynamic perspective.

    40 inches of rain is one meter of rain. This is one metric ton or 1,000 kilograms or one million grams of water per square meter.

    All of this water had to be evaporated from the Gulf of Mexico then carried up into the upper atmosphere by convection where it condensed by radiating heat out into space.

    The latent heat of vaporization of water is about 2,200 Joules per gram or 2.2 million Joules per Kg or 2.2 GJ per metric ton. In other words, 40 inches of rain equals 2.2 GJ of energy radiated into space per square meter. This equals 2.2eex15 Joules per square kilometer. This is the energy equivalent of a 1/2 Megaton nuke per square kilometer.

    I am uncertain about how much land area is predicted to receive 40″ or only 30″ or 20″ or 10″ of rain. However; if 100,000 square kilometers of area, on land or at sea, receives 40 inches of rain, that is the energy equivalent of 50,000 one Megaton nukes.

    Earth’s air conditioning system just turned up to full cooling.

    • jrapdx says:

      Interesting. Haven’t double-checked the calculations, but seems about right. Of course you meant “one million grams of water per cubic meter”.

      The energy is symmetric for vaporization and condensation. IOW while (solar) energy is required for evaporation of ocean water, the absorbed energy is “returned” when vapor condenses into liquid.

      That’s a good description of the power of the storm, the massive rains are releasing megatons of energy. Clearly enough the people of Houston have been hit by Mother Nature with a huge destructive force that no doubt feels like the equivalent of atomic bombs.

      Like

      • James W Crawford says:

        Of course the volumetric density is one million grams per cubic meter, but I was thinking of sectional density which is in units of mass per square meter.

        The important takeaway is that the energy equivalent of this storm is comparable to thr total US and USSR nuclear arsenals at the height of the cold war.

        I also like to point out that the hydrological cycle of evaporation (driven primarily by solar energy absorbed by the ocean), convection, condensation at high altitude and precipitation effectively short circuits the greenhouse effect making CO2 emmissions irrellevant.

      They should have started evacuating those in the lowest-lying areas. Then gone to the next lowest, etc. It could have easily been done if the mayor wasn’t acting like RAY NAGIN.

    SD – Not sure how many commentors on here are in the area, but I’m on the west side. If you have family or friends on the south side of Houston down to Galveston County, they have been hit the worst. Hopefully they have moved to a shelter. The west side, out to Katy is hit and miss. This is bad. I’ve been in hurricanes down here since 1983 and the wind damage around the area has been minimal, but the rain is horrendous. Right now, no one can predict how long it may last. Some estimates are up through Thursday. The best thing everyone can do right now is to send prayers. – Tex

      That is what my niece said ===They are praying for the people south of them.
      Like I said earlier, Houston is know for flooding with just a hour or two of rain, and now a hurricane.
      Praying that the good Lord watches over, and keeps the Texans safe

      News just said they will be releasing water from Addicks and Barker reservoirs. This means more water into the bayous flowing through Houston but they need to relieve pressure on the dams.

      Charles Wagner, Brazoria County, Tx Sheriff was on FoxNews saying the heavy rains could last through Thursday. That’s going to increase the flooding immensely.

      Tex, SO GOOD to see you!! I’ve been thinking of you since Friday, hoping you and Mrs. Tex were ok. DH has a son, DIL and 2 grandkids in Houston, they went up to The Woodlands; not sure that’s far enough. They were ok Friday night, haven’t heard from them since. Saying prayers for them, for you, for all affected by this disaster. We sure do miss you next door at Stella’s.

    I’ve read that the fifty inches number is the result of a new European measuring system intended to advance the global warming hoax. Keep an eye open for this.
