Hurricane Harvey Recovery: Strength and resilience after the storm

Thursday, Nov. 30 is the last day of the 2017 Hurricane Season. The death toll there stands at 58, but a CNN investigation revealed 499 deaths recorded by funeral homes. Hurricane Harvey made impact on South Texas from August 25-29, most significantly flooding Houston and breaking the record for the most rainfall in a single storm.

The three major hurricanes that made landfall were Harvey in Texas, Irma in the Caribbean and southeastern USA, and Maria in the Caribbean and Puerto Rico. Cindy swept ashore as a tropical storm near Cameron, Louisiana and was the first tropical system to make landfall in the state since Isaac in 2012.

Making a Florida landfall as a major hurricane on September 10th, Irma was the first to do so since Wilma in 2005. It was also the costliest ever for the United Sates, with damages topping $200 billion.

Shortages of IV fluids were dated back as far as 2014, but the heavy damage Puerto Rico sustained following Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Irma has made the situation worse.

This season as a whole racked up the seventh-most ACE on record, joining the ranks of truly notable and memorable seasons such as 1933, 2005, 1893, 1926, 1995, 2004, 1950, 1961 and 1998.

Mumbai also ranked second in cases of kidnapping and abduction of children, with 5,457 cases in Delhi and 1,864 cases in Mumbai . However, the cases registered under special and local laws in the state have decreased from 16,496 in 2015 to 11,282 in 2016.

Recently, we've seen tropical storms, even hurricanes, either persist or form after November 30.

Lastly, Ophelia became a hurricane three days later on October 11th. In the two months since the storm, half the population still is without power.

Some areas got over four feet of water, which was the most rainfall amount from a single storm in the continental US. That weakened the vertical wind shear that tends to limit development of tropical storms in the Atlantic.

Although forecasters were kept on their toes, according to verification data, the NHC said that track forecasts (those cones that you see on TV) had record low error. Irma's projected track had the storm headed far inland toward Charlotte before veering to the west. Irma's remains still whipped up 83 miles per hour gusts on Mount Mitchell.
