IMERG data image of Imelda (IMAGE) NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Caption NASA's IMERG estimated that by Friday morning, September 20, Tropical Storm Imelda had dropped over 24 inches of rain (dark pink) between Beaumont and Houston, Texas. Estimates of between 16 and 24 inches have fallen (light pink) between Freeport and Beaumont, and 6 inches and more (red) over a large area between southwestern Louisiana and Palacios, Texas. Large "L" symbols show Imelda's location estimated by the National Hurricane Center. An "R" symbol on the image indicates a place where the rainfall from the remnant of Imelda caused a U.S. Geological Survey river gauge to swell to "major flood" stage. Small red circles on this image indicate the location of these tornado reports, as provided by NOAA's Storm Prediction Center.
