A 6.7-inch rain in March produced a 29-foot flood along the Trinity near Liberty, and flooding shouldn’t have happened that fast with such a small rain amount. In comparison, Harvey created a 32-foot flood following a record 55 inches of rain over three days.

    Trinity River changed by Hurricane Harvey
    The now quiet, serene movement of the water down the Trinity River is deceptive. While its ebb and flow, and rising and falling levels usually go unnoticed, lurking in the waters and along its banks is possibly an unrecognizable danger brought on by the torrential rain from Hurricane Harvey, and there's nothing that can be done about it.
