Texas record rainfall from a tropical cyclone broken after Harvey's torrential downpours

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- As of Tuesday, Harvey is now in the record books for the rainiest tropical cyclone the Lone Star State has ever seen. Several spots have now had over 50 inches. That's about as much rain as the First Coast sees on average in an entire year.

Hurricane Easy holds the record rainfall total from a tropical cyclone for the state of Florida. That storm dropped 45.20 inches in Yankeetown on the west coast of the Sunshine State back in 1950.
