UPDATE (11:10 a.m. ET): Accuweather reports that Harvey will be the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history, racking up $160 billion in damages.
Tropical Storm Harvey is back on land. After meandering in the Gulf for a couple days, the storm came ashore near Cameron, Louisiana this morning (Wednesday).
Harvey packs winds of 45 miles per hour, and weakening is expected. Though rainfall totals of up to 10 inches are possible in extreme eastern Texas and Louisiana, there's no threat of multiple feet of rain as the storm accelerates through the Southeast. And skies have cleared in the Houston area.
The Houston Chronicle reports that Harvey is now officially the most extreme rain event in U.S. history, breaking a record set by Hurricane Amelia in 1978.
