Harvey in Iowa

Posted: 26 Aug 2017 03:16 PM

Hurricane Harvey roared onshore last night as a Category 4 storm. While the initial storm surge and extreme winds have subsided, day upon day of heavy rains are expected in the area as the storm takes its sweet time to move north. For the sake of perspective for us Iowans, the hurricane as depicted by Corpus Christi, TX NEXRAD last night is shown transposed into Iowa as if it was observed from the Des Moines NEXRAD. The scale of such storms is remarkable!

Good = 11
Bad = 0
