Hurricane Harvey is the first hurricane of the Atlantic hurricane season of 2017. Harvey was a category 4 hurricane that ransacked parts of Latin America as well as the United States.

In Texas, almost 300,000 people were left without power after this monstrous storm; as well as almost 185,000 homes were affected by Hurricane Harvey. As of now, there have been 69 reported fatalities; although, officials expect that this number will rise.

In Latin America, many houses were flooded, while one was completely destroyed. Many cities were left without power due to the high winds of the hurricane.

In total, Harvey dropped about 40-50 inches of rain in Texas and Latin America. Harvey even caused flash floods in places as far as Kentucky, Arkansas and Tennessee according to https://weather.com.

Now, Hurricane Irma, a Category 4 hurricane, has torn through the southeast of the United States as well as the Caribbean islands. Almost 80 people have been killed.
