I shared this article with the Houston thread and sharing it here. The aftermath of Harvey is still lingering. I recently saw a home for sale in Canyon Gate. I get chills looking at this and remembering. Thank goodness we never lost power.

Actually a well done article and fantastic maps for that area. 'Built to flood' indeed. Amazing knowing it would one day flood into neighborhoods and watching that timelapse google earth image of neighborhood after neighborhood expanding into the reservoirs designed flood area. Thanks for sharing!

It was a well done article and maps. I still get chills thinking about it.

Here is another article I bookmarked about the aftermath of Harvey and contaminates in the soil and in the air. I visited a doctor three months after Harvey and she said a lot of people are having upper respiratory problems.

Since it's past the one year anniversary - Here is a look in pictures posted on a local (Houston) news page. I'm sure other areas impacted by Harvey have their own pictures and stories to share.


"A total of 1 trillion gallons of water fell across Harris County over the 4 day period which would fill NRG Stadium 1,472 times and cover Harris County’s 1,777 sq. miles with an average of 33.7 inches of water. This volume of water would also run Niagara Falls for 15 days."

Records Broken
The report includes a number of USGS gauge readings of stages that were taken during Hurricane Harvey, most of them record-breaking. The oldest record to fall was this one on Brays Bayou at Belle Park Drive.
