Hurricane Harvey (Aug, 2017)
Severity index for river discharge, termed "return period," calculated by the TE system in the case of Hurricane Harvey at the end of August, 2017. The TE system efficiently shows the severity of the situation by describing the increase in the number of reddish grids indicating "very severe" (return period of over 30 years) as the hurricane passes over Houston, Texas. Therefore, through the TE website, the severity of the situation can be seen in comparison with the usual and past state.
