On August 25, 2017 Hurricane Harvey swept through Texas, destroying thousands of residential and commercial properties. Hurricane Harvey is one of the most devastating category 4 tropical storms to date, causing damage or destruction to at least 300,000 structures and 500,000 vehicles, and displacing over 30,000 people from their homes. Damage from Hurricane Harvey is estimated at $125 billion.
Harris county and Houston’s surrounding metropolitan areas suffered most from the 33 trillion-gallon downpour, with over 60 inches of rain accumulating in many developed areas. Unfortunately, Houston’s infrastructure could not facilitate the catastrophic effects of Harvey, leaving thousands homeless and destroying hundreds of businesses.
