I've been in Houston when they got 2 or 3 inches in a couple hours.  It flooded a lot of roads and caused havoc.  It was just a hard afternoon shower.  Hard to even contemplate what this amount of rain can do.

We got 4" overnight last week in a thunder storm.  The ponding on the roads made them impassable for a few hours, and we're in a rural area.  We've had 26" year to date.  Twenty inches from one storm would be a nightmare in any location.   :o

We're located just north of Nixon, TX.......it's been raining all day and just guessing at what I'm looking at in the rain gauge it looks like we've gotten 9 or 10 inches so far....and it's still raining.  The wind has been fierce and it's still blowing as well.  I'm kind of amazed any of our trees are still standing.  But the most important thing of course is my lt40 is high and dry in the barn!

Only the outer band of rain has reached us but fishfighter is getting a soaking.  This misery will continue for the rest of the week for the fortunate and for weeks, months, and years for the less fortunate.

21 inches of rain at Hacienda de la Staples as of this morning, and an all day rain event for today.  Supposed to be over Louisiana tomorrow.  I think tomorrow may never come.

Keep your boat ready!

21 inches of rain sounds more like an annual measurement than from one storm.

Thanks for providing news!

Looks like the predictions of Harvey sliding eastward into La and Ms were accurate. It's already happening. South end of both states already getting pounded. I'm about 200 miles from the coast and I'm still dry, but it's a'comin.. Next couple of days gonna be wet. I expect to loose some more timber, the ground is already saturated.

I just heard on the news that one part of Houston has officially recorded 49.2 inches of rain.  FOUR FEET OF RAIN!   :o

It boggles the mind.

Saw a projected path that takes it over LA and MS. Hope you folks all can ride this out. This is sure a lot of rain!

Pineywoods, you and Magic Man may be seeing this thing first hand, hopefully greatly reduced.  We should be clear of it by tomorrow morning with a little drizzle left over.  It keeps moving east and the boys in Georgia will be getting their saw dust wet.

The storm's predicted/forecast path is directly over pineywoods which will be about 100 miles West of me.   That puts me on the "wet" side but of course how much rain it will actually generate is ???
