Hurricane Harvey unloaded more than 50 inches of rain in parts of Texas, the greatest amount ever recorded in the lower 48 states from a single storm.

Senior Research Engineer Sandra Knight, Research Professor Gerald Galloway, Assistant Professor Allison Reilly, and Professor Bilal Ayyub, all of the Clark School's Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Center for Disaster Resilience, were interviewed by The New York Times, The Washington Post, and others.
