(CNN)The toll that Harvey is taking on Texas is staggering.
Already, it has dumped 11 trillion gallons of rain over the state, says Ryan Maue with WeatherBell, a weather analytics company. And by the time Harvey dissipates, the state will have seen 25 trillion gallons of rain, he predicts.
Between midnight Friday and 9:20 a.m. Tuesday, 49.20 inches of rain fell in Texas -- a record for continental US from a landfalling tropical cyclone, the National Weather Service said.
"The word catastrophic does not appropriately describe what we're facing," said Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, who represents much of Houston. "We just don't know when it's going to end."
