Maps Show What Harvey’s Impact Would Look Like Around the World

We took a NASA map of only the heaviest rainfall impact from Harvey, scaled it into Google Maps, and used that to compare what the storm’s impact might look like in the rest of the world. Sure, it’s not a very scientific analysis, but it should give people who don’t live in Texas or Louisiana an idea of just how big this all is.

Starting here at home, most of New England is covered. If you look at the photo above, MA would be entirely covered if Hurricane Harvey had made landfall on the East Coast.

To get an idea of just how massive Harvey is, lets move outside of the United States. The storm impact would cover half of Poland.

All of Ireland.

Spinning the globe a little more, and all of Israel would be underwater.

Honestly, we could keep going for days, but you get the idea. Texas is a BIG state, and this should help people not from the area understand just how far Harvey’s impact has reached.

It’s not just Houston.
