My condolences to all those in Texas going through Harvey. The weather channel just reported some staggering potential rain totals given the relentless rain.
It is my understanding the storm is trapped by high pressure pushing down keeping it in place and while stationary, spinning picking up moisture from ocean and thus dumping it relentlessly on the state. A nice summary is here, https://gizmodo.com/why-tropical-storm-harvey-is-showing-texas-no-mercy-1798465439Guys, please excuse my ignorance in asking this, I genuinely don't know.. How long does this kind of storm last for usually? Is this a case of pack up some belongings and evacuate if you can?
