Hurricane Season is here and Houston is Still Feeling Affects from Harvey

Hurricane season is among us and the Houston region is still reeling from the effect of Hurricane Harvey almost two years later.

Ninety-five percent of the county’s flood control infrastructure damaged by Harvey has yet to be repaired, a testament to the scope of the monster storm and the laggard pace at which the federal government disburses funds. Though the county flood control district has begun projects supported by a $2.5 billion flood infrastructure bond passed by voters in August 2018, no major improvements have been completed.

A few weeks ago, the area encountered days of heavy rain. More than 400 homes flooded in a local county. The local infrastructure that controls flooding is extremely vulnerable and it’s showing with each significant rainfall.

In order to make the necessary repairs, the county is relying on three federal grants that total $86 million. Many are hopeful the repairs will be complete by September 2020 which means the residents still have to get through another full and partial hurricane season.
