25 August 2017 - Hurricane Harvey made landfall midway along the Texas coast between late Friday night on 25 August 2017. GOES-16 imagery of the storm is shown above in geocolor and from infrared band 13.

Harvey produced over 50 inches of rainfall over parts of the Houston metropolitan area, and even now (5 September 2017) flood waters have not completely subsided, and damage estimates are in the hundreds of billions of dollars.

Special thanks to RAMMB/CIRA and STAR IT for image animation and geocolor development support.
