Harvey- Another 1000 Year Flood

114A4232-EditHarvey- dumped  nine trillion gallons of water on the Gulf Coast of Texas. The storm was  classified as the most extreme rain event in U.S. history.

Harvey is the third 1000 year flood I have documented in the last 13 months.  Last year, I photographed the  1000 year flood in Southern Louisiana and Mathew in North Carolina.

The determinations that make a 1000 year flood, a 1000 year flood are based on the chances of several factors coming together to cause a weather event. These calculations don’t seem to have factored climate change in to the equation.

Here are links to my work on the three 1000 year floods mentioned in this post.
