CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Heavy rains in South Texas have caused flooding in areas hit hard by Hurricane Harvey less than a year ago.

The National Weather Service meteorologist Tyler Castillo said Wednesday that up to 15 inch (38 cm) of rain have fallen in some areas along the coast since Tuesday. Port Aransas, which was destroyed when Harvey hit of last August, is one of the cities flooded.

Earlier this week heavy rain further to the north in the vicinity of Beaumont, partly as a result of flooding. Chris Jenkins’ home in Orange County was flooded with about 6 inches (15 cm) of water. He and his family had just moved back into the home in March after it flooded during Harvey.

He told KHOU that he returned to find “everything floats on the floor. Nothing can prepare you for.”
