Hurricane Harvey – Preparing for a Second Landfall

Station E1TX is in Spring, TX – and very proximal to the flooded Spring Creek – has the fortune to have sustained continuous power during this unprecedented weather event.  We had a power “flash off, then on” yesterday which knocked us offline until it was detected.  At this time, additional un-controlled and controlled water releases are occurring at the upstream lakes inclusive of Lake Conroe.  Overwhelming rain and consequential flooding is occurring in Kingwood, a northwest suburb of Houston. The Houston metro area is anticipating additional rainfall when Hurricane Harvey makes a second landfall east of Houston in the next 24-36 hours.

We can observe local and regional ground water movement on the EQ1 Seismograph.  This update is dated 08/29/17 at 12:45pm CST.
