Whether you're a Newstonian, a concerned onlooker from afar, or simply unfamiliar with every nook and cranny of the city, it can be difficult to judge the extent of Houston's flooding if you're unfamiliar with what the landscape typically looks like on a non-catastrophically-stormy day.

Below, a collection of photos and video that demonstrate just how devastating the Hurricane Harvey rains have been so far. And if those aren't enough, check out these side-by-side comparisons at the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.
