Flooding in Houston area could be 'worst flood ever in U.S.'

HOUSTON (Fox 32 News) - Some parts of Houston and Galveston, Texas, could get 50 inches of rain by the time that Tropical Storm Harvey is over, leading the National Weather Service to issue a dire warning:

"This event is unprecedented and all impacts are unknown and beyond anything experienced."

If the Houston area does get more than four feet of rain it would be the most rain ever recorded in United States history and could lead to the worst flood ever to happen in this country.

Houston will continue to get rain through Thursday.
