Hello, how can I get info on flooding (flood zones and info on whether certain neighborhoods were flooded with Harvey)? Thinking about buying a specific home but want to get more info first. Even if the house I’m thinking of buying didn’t flood, it would be helpful to know what happened to the neighborhood. Thanks!!

Talk to your home owners insurance rep and ask about the subdivision you're considering. He/she can look up claims. You should also do your own research. Check the internet, find the address and see if there was a past history of the home selling, compare other homes on the street for sale to see if they were flood damaged. . . Check youtube. No joke, check flooding and the area because there are a lot of videos out there.

Ask your realtor to be honest with you. Don't buy in Canyon Gate. Please! Don't buy near a river or a creek. Floodplains change and our last few flooding events changed the charts to where they're not up to date. There is a website where you can check the elevation of any given address: elevation.com

Use page down to view this map and article. You can compare this map to a regular one to know what areas are risky.

Also there are a lot of posts post Harvey on this Houston forum about which areas flooded and which didn't. Do a search.
