I am looking at these 4 communities (Aliana, Long Meadow, Waterside, and Harvest Green) to buy a new or used home because the prices in Riverstone are ridiculous and Sienna isn't too much better. How did these 4 communities (Aliana, Long Meadow, Waterside, and Harvest Green) do during Hurricane Harvey? Thanks in advance for your time and help.

Harvest Green (our subdivision) was fine and I believe the same is true for Aliana and Long Meadow. Waterside Estates, if I recall correctly had some evacuations due to water on the streets/yards, but I don't believe it got into houses.

I believe there is a thread with pretty detailed information about what neighborhoods flooded.

Good luck.

I believe localized areas of long meadow farm flooded, but it wasn't as bad as expected. If the watershed had peaked as high as was being predicted at the time, it would have been bad.

Get flood insurance anywhere in that area since there are creeks/bayous.

Harvest Green, Aliana, and Waterside did not flood at all. Parts of Long Meadow experienced street flooding. I actually "escaped" to this area from the threat of flooding in Sienna. BTW, Sienna and Harvest Green prices are just about the same. Same developer and most of the same builders also. But I'd go for Harvest Green if your work commute would be decent from there. I moved from the area to Sienna and although I really like Sienna, I wish I had purchased in Harvest Green.

I know maybe it’s semantics and I don’t live in long meadow, but street flooding isn’t really flooding and it would surprise me if the streets didn’t fill somewhat in those other neighborhoods as well. The street is part of the drainage system and intended to carry water and thus “flood” in extreme events such as Harvey. If it’s halfway up your yard and into your house etc that is a flood obviously. Neighborhood where I live had water in the streets (nowhere else for it to go with the ditches and storm drains, the first lines of defense if you will, being full). I feel very fortunate the system technically did its job and there was no water in the house with 40 inches of rain or whatever. (Excuse me getting technical).

Thanks for adding this. I knew they engineered some of the submerged freeways in central Houston to flood over the neighborhoods.
