  • Oceanweather Presents Hurricane Harvey Hindcast at 1st Workshop on Waves, Storm Surges and Coastal Hazards held in Liverpool, UK

    An analysis of Hurricane Harvey (2017) was presented at the 1st Workshop on Waves, Storm Surges and Coastal Hazards held in Liverpool, UK. Harvey made landfall near San Jose Island on the Texas coast as a Category 4 storm on the Saffir-Simpson scale with one-minute winds of 115-120 knots. The storm devastated the coastal towns of Rockport and Fulton TX and dumped over 50 inches of rain in the Houston area. In order to critically assess wind, wave and surge damage both offshore and on the coast, a detailed analysis of the wind and pressure fields in Harvey were required for application in ocean response models.
