This was our personal experience with Tropical Storm Imelda that happened on 09-19-2019. Thankfully we didn’t flood. Tropical Storm Imelda was the fifth-wettest tropical cyclone on record in the continental United States, causing devastating and record-breaking floods in southeast Texas. Impacts began on September 17, when Imelda made landfall as a weak tropical storm; Imelda brought heavy rain and dangerous flooding to parts of southeastern Texas (especially the cities of Galveston and Beaumont) as its motion gradually slowed over land. Dozens of water rescues were needed by September 19 as areas became overwhelmed by the rainfall, with some areas experiencing over 43 inches (1,100 mm) of rain.
