will Houston still growing that much after Hurricane Ike??

- population growth of more than 100 000 a year in the metro
- job growth like in the last years!

or will people move to other places in Texas because they know a Hurricane could hit Houston again and again! maybe next year or only in 50 years!

sorry for my bad english im from germany but Houston is my favorite US city!
and i wish you all the best!

LOL no I don't think it's over...Houston has enough hot air left over to re-inflate itself.

Every year?


"Due to its location between two major bodies of water known for tropical activity, Miami is also statistically the most likely major city in the world to be struck by a hurricane, trailed closely by Nassau, Bahamas, and Havana, Cuba. Despite this, the city has been fortunate in not having a direct hit by a hurricane since Hurricane Cleo in 1964. However, many other hurricanes have affected the city, including Betsy in 1965, Andrew in 1992, Irene in 1999, and Hurricanes Katrina and Wilma in 2005."

You'd need a bigger hit then Ike to stop Houston, it will keep growing for now.
