The rain was already coming down.

Starting Sunday, August 27, reports the NWS, “Harvey is expected to meander in and around the Southeast Texas area for several days and produce round after round of showers and thunderstorms. Rainfall totals (including today`s and tonight`s 10 to 15 inches) will be adding up with event amounts of 15 to 30 inches expected and isolated maximum totals of 40 inches possible. The greatest threat area is expected to be generally along and south of a line from Brenham to Conroe to High Island. Rainfall of this magnitude will cause catastrophic and life-threatening flooding.”
