Certain occasions cause us to remember details and our reactions as though they just occurred. Harvey is one of those events with unending accounts…those who evacuated, those who rode it out, those who were miles inland, those who were unexpectedly flooded, those who lost everything, those who volunteered their help, those who still are trying to recover…
Harvey also did not happen on the same day for everyone since the tropical event made five landfalls.
August 18, 2017, Harvey made its first landfall as a tropical storm in Barbados and St. Vincent then weakened as it moved through the Caribbean Sea and across the Yucatan.
August 23, Harvey had regenerated to tropical storm strength as it reached the Bay of Campeche in the Gulf of Mexico.
August 24, Harvey continued to strengthen as it moved through the Gulf of Mexico toward the Texas coast.
August 25, the center of the category 4 hurricane made its first Texas landfall on San Jose Island shortly before midnight then quickly moved to its next landfall (4th of the total) at Rockport-Fulton.
August 26, Harvey moved inland to the Refugio area then headed north as it weakened and stalled.
August 28, Harvey re-emerged into the Gulf of Mexico near Houston leaving record breaking rains behind.
August 30, Harvey made its fifth and final landfall west of Cameron, Louisiana.
September 1, Harvey continued moving inland as a post-tropical cyclone.
