BEAUMONT — One year, 365 days ago a storm that would change Southeast Texas forever was hovering along the upper Texas coast.
Harvey delivered record rain the likes of which Southeast Texas had never seen.
A disturbance, 400 miles to the east of the lesser Antilles, became better organized, and Harvey was born.
Harvey was a storm that would go on to strike Texas and become one of our state's costliest weather-related disasters on record tying Hurricane Katrina's $125 billion price tag.
By the August 19, 2018, Harvey dissipated due to shear and dry air over the Caribbean.
But by August 23, Harvey redeveloped into a tropical storm in the Southwestern Gulf of Mexico and forecasters issued hurricane watches for the Texas coast.
Hurricane warnings were issued for the South Texas coast five days later on August 24, 2018.
The next day Harvey strengthened in a category 4 monster, with winds of 130 mph, and punishing wind and rain.
12News tracked it for you as it made landfall at Aransas Pass.
What happened next created a catastrophic scenario for the upper Texas coast.
Upper level winds weakened leaving the storm to meander, soaking Southeast Texas and by Monday, August 28 it moved back over the water and re-strengthened.
The rain just kept coming and our worst fears came true.
On August 30, 2018 the storm made its final landfall in Southwest Louisiana and finally started moving northeast but the damage was done.
Here's a look at Harvey by the numbers...
From Sunday, August 27, through Wednesday, August 30, 2018 Harvey dumped more than 60 inches of rain setting a new record for the wettest tropical cyclone to strike the U.S.
In Nederland, on August 29, 2018, 26.03" of rain fell at Jack Brooks Regional Airport in what was the wettest day ever recorded there, since records began in 1901.
In Jefferson County, widespread flooding of more than 40 inches resulted in 64,000 homes being flooded mainly in Port Arthur, Groves, Bevil Oaks, Hamshire, Fannett, China and Northeast Beaumont.
Record flood crests were recorded on the Pine Island Bayou and the lower Neches River.
In Orange County, 30-50 inches resulted in almost 28,000 homes being flooded.
The hardest hit parts of Orange County were Orange, Vidor, Orangefield, Pine Forest, West Orange, Mauriceville, Rose City and Lake View.
This also caused record flood levels on Cow Bayou and the highest level on the Sabine River since Hurricane Ike in 2008.
Flooding even caused Interstate 10 to be shut down.
In Hardin County, 20-40" of rain caused 10,000 homes to be flooded hitting Lumberton, Silsbee, Sour Lake and Kountze the hardest.
The Neches River at Evadale recorded its second highest level ever recorded since 1884 and a portion of the Highway 69 bridge over Village Creek near Silsbee collapsed due to the flooding.
In Tyler County, 20-30" of rainfall resulted in major flooding with more than 1700 homes being flooded.
In Jasper Newton Counties, 20-40" fell resulting in 4,000 homes being flooded in Jasper County and another 2,000 to be flooded in neighboring Newton County.
Harvey caused more than a billion dollars in damage in Jefferson county alone and claimed the lives of 17 people.
