Hurricane Season Ends: The 2017 hurricane season is now officially in the books, and it will go down as one of the most active hurricane seasons on record. Of course, Hurricane Harvey will long be remembered for the historic flooding it caused here in Liberty County and throughout the Texas Gulf Coast. The six-month Atlantic hurricane season started June 1 and ended yesterday. Here are the final numbers - there were 17 named tropical storms in the Atlantic Basin this year with ten of those becoming hurricanes. Six were classified as a major hurricane with sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour. Hurricane Harvey made landfall on August 25 near Rockport as a Category 4, causing widespread flooding as it moved through Southeast Texas into Louisiana. From Friday, August 25, through Wednesday, August 30, Hurricane Harvey dumped a total of 41.75 inches of rain on the City of Liberty.
