In August 2017, Hurricane Harvey dropped more than 30 trillion gallons of water along the Texas Gulf Coast.

This website is a place where you can find memories and digital artifacts about this historic natural disaster or share your own stories, images, and audiovisual recordings related to Hurricane Harvey.

Our mission is to collect, preserve, and share digital artifacts associated with the storm, as well as the many personal stories that Harvey left in its wake—stories of rescue, resilience, and recovery, as well as stories of painful loss and lingering questions. Read our About page for more information about the Harvey Memories Project or Contact Us with your questions.
