Record floods in Texas fading, but not gone (forecast video)
More Flash Flooding potential in Texas
The remnants of Tropical Depression Imelda have lost some steam, but not before dumping record rainfall across southeastern Texas for three days, causing major flooding and killing two people. Even though the widespread rain has stopped across the region, many roads, homes and businesses in Houston, Galveston, Port Aurthur, Beaumont and places in between remain flooded.
Some communities have been soaked by 20 to 40 inches of rainfall from Tuesday through Thursday, with widespread totals of 10 to 20 inches elsewhere. Daily rainfall records were set two of the three days at William P. Hobby Airport in Houston ICAO: HOU), Scholes International Airport in Galveston ICAO: GLS), and Jack Brooks Regional Airport in Beaumont (ICAO: BPT), where more than 11.5 inches fell yesterday. George Bush International Airport in Houston had record daily rainfall yesterday.
Not only were daily records shattered, but the three-day totals at these airports, ranging from nearly 12 inches to almost 22, also broke monthly rainfall records. On average, southeastern Texas receives four to six inches of rain in September. According to the article from the freightwaves.com and its author
