Re: Hurricane Beryl

My weather friend Josh - icyclone sums it up very well. Here is his FB post regarding Beryl: A lot of folks in Metro Houston—including members of this page—seem genuinely shocked by the big impact Cat-1 Hurricane BERYL had on the city. Several folks have said it seemed worse than Cat-2 IKE back in 2...

Re: Hurricane Beryl

Humberto 2007 is a prime example of how fast things can change in 24 hours if conditions are ripe thus we need to watch Beryl closely today and tomorrow: The intensification rate in Humberto was one of the highest that has ever been observed for an initially weak tropical cyclone. It is estimated th...

Re: Tropical Storm Claudette 1979 Coverage

I was 10 years old living in E Pearland. Received 22” of rain in 24 hours. We got a break in the afternoon and remember the dark skies off to the S toward Alvin. Right about dark there was a wave of low clouds that looked like smoke. A minute later the deluge returned and continued until 2AM. The ho...
