Florence is huge. Harvey was huger.
Last summer I wrote about how much water hurricane Harvey had dropped on the Houston area. And I decided to revisit this with Florence making landfall. Florence is expected to drop 10 trillion gallons of water on the Carolinas and the surrounding regions. That’s a ton of water. Here it is relative to the great lakes.
But here’s the crazy part. Harvey dropped 25 trillions gallons of water on Houston! Florence is going to drop more water than the Great Salt Lake. And Harvey dropped 2.5 times that!!!! Holy crap Harvey.
