Downgraded to a tropical depression, Harvey is tracking northwest towards Mississippi after dumping huge amounts of rain on southwest Louisiana, causing more flooding. Bayou Conway, Louisiana, received 22.25 inches of rain—much more than the 10 inches predicted.
Harvey is anticipated to dissipate by Saturday afternoon. Before then, areas in northern Mississippi, western Tennessee, northwest Georgia, and North Alabama remain at risk of heavy rainfall and flash flooding.
As Harvey dies down, millions have been left in its wake looking for shelter, food, and water. It may take days for the floodwaters to recede, and months before local residents are able to get back to some more normalcy in daily life.
