Final Harvey rainfall totals, peak winds from National Hurricane Center

The National Hurricane Center has released its final storm summary on rainfall and winds associated with Hurricane Harvey. Cedar Bayou, Texas recorded 51.88 inches of rain from Harvey, breaking the continental U.S. record for rainfall from a single storm. Port Aransas, Texas recorded the highest peak wind gusts, at 132 mph.

Parts of Houston recorded more than 44 inches of rain from Harvey, and Beaumont-Port Arthur saw 47.35 inches.

Harvey was downgraded to a tropical storm on Saturday, Aug. 26 as it made landfall. Wednesday, Harvey was downgraded again to a tropical depression with sustained winds of 35 mph in Louisiana.

“Catastrophic and life-threatening flooding will continue in and around Houston, Beaumont/Port Arthur, and eastward into southwest Louisiana for the rest of the week,” according to the National Hurricane Center. “The expected heavy rains spreading northeastward from Louisiana into western Kentucky may also lead to flash flooding and increased river and small stream flooding. Do not attempt to travel in the affected area if you are in a safe place. Do not drive into flooded roadways.”

Here are the preliminary rainfall totals from Harvey, from 8 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 24 through 9 p.m. on Wednesday Aug. 30. All data from the National Hurricane Center / National Weather Service.
