Hurricane Harvey has broken more than one record in the history of natural disasters. Dumping around 19 trillion gallons of rain over Southeast Texas and another 5.5 trillion gallons of water over Louisiana-this storm is no joke.
For the first time in 56 years, a higher than category three storm touched down in Texas with winds reaching category four status at 132 miles per hour.
The damage that has been done is outstanding. Estimates suggest that 190 million in damages have been done-that’s compared to around 50 million in damages from Katrina.
The massive influx of water and high winds have caused more than just damage to homes, businesses and streets. Around 37 people have been confirmed lost to this epic natural disaster which began as a tropical storm.
Forced to leave their homes and seek shelter many families suffered for days on end awaiting rescue from their flooded homes.
A reporter from CNN sought to get a little insight on the effects of Hurricane Harvey while visiting shelter in Houston. What she could not have predicted was that her insensitivity to the subject would call for a deeply emotional and understandably, somewhat vulgar response from one newly rescued mother and her children.
