Hurricane Harvey wrought enormous destruction across the Gulf Coast when it made landfall five years ago, and no place was hit worse than Houston, where the storm dropped an estimated one trillion gallons of water and caused more than 35 flood-related deaths.
Harvey marked the largest rain event in U.S. history, and it obviously would have caused a great deal of damage to the city no matter what. However, new research published last week in Nature Communications asserts that without the effects of climate change, damage done by the infamous hurricane could have been much less severe.
