Imelda dumps nearly 4 feet of rain on parts of Texas
from ABC News
Texas residents are grappling with the effects of Imelda after the storm dumped nearly four feet of rain on parts of the Lone Star State. Imelda brought up to 43 inches of rain between Winnie and Beaumont in the last three days, most of it falling in just 24 hours. Gov. Greg Abbott on Thursday declared a state of disaster for 13 counties due to the effects of the storm.
This week's downpour represents the fourth highest amount of rain from a tropical system in Texas' recorded history, as well as the seventh highest amount of rain from a tropical system in the recorded history of the United States. Harvey brought 60 inches of rain to Texas two years ago, which remains the U.S. record for most rain from a tropical system.
