The catastrophic weather event in the state of Texas continues, and the language being used by the National Weather Service and FEMA is extremely disheartening. The rainfall is expected to continue over the southeast part of the state and break records as it does.

The Weather Service is calling it “unprecedented” and “beyond anything experienced.”

The rainfall numbers are just astounding.

And here is how FEMA is describing the effort that is going to be required to recover from the disaster.
