hurricane harvey texas

One of my pet peeves ... the National Weather Service rates hurricane intensity solely based on wind speed. So for example a Category 1 means winds of 74 to 95 mph. Then Category 2 and so on. The categories completely ignore the amount of rainfall, and the storm surge, and the area covered, and the forward motion speed, and the duration of the various effects. Oftentimes water damage and flooding cause more damage and casualties than the wind.
Hurricane Harvey, now a Category 4 storm, is pummeling the Texas coast with harsh winds and torrential rain. Houston, Corpus Christi and Galveston are in its path.
