digitalglobe-logoDigitalGlobe released satellite imagery of Houston after Hurricane Harvey hit.

Hurricane Harvey slammed into the Gulf Coast of Texas — just southwest of Houston — on Aug. 25. According to DigitalGlobe, the hurricane packed sustained winds at more than 130 miles per hour and has been identified as the largest single rainmaking event in continental U.S. history.

The images show downtown Houston, George Bush Intercontinental Airport and the interstate highways, which are relatively dry. Significant flooding remains in towns east and north of Houston, including Kingwood, Highlands and Channelview, the company says.
