With Harvey, a updated map is some-more specific in display a graphical depiction of rainfall intervals, that aren’t mostly celebrated during such high levels.”

Dark purple now represents 15-20 inches. The new map also uses a plum tone to uncover rainfall of 20-30 inches and a reddish lavender to uncover sleet larger than 30 inches. Yes, a grave use of Prince’s famed “purple rain.”
