Hurricane Harvey made landfall on 24th August near Corpus Christi, Texas, as a Category four storm. It is on track to be one of the costliest hurricanes in U.S. history. The storm produced up to 50 inches of rain in some areas, causing historic flooding and wreaking havoc on communities throughout Southeastern Texas and Southwestern Louisiana. On 10th September, hurricane Irma made landfall in Florida as a Category four storm, producing disastrous storm-surge flooding, tornadoes and forceful wind gusts across the state. This is the first time in recorded history that two Category fjour storms made landfall in the U.S. in the same year.
