Texas homeowners: We weren't warned about flooding risks
from Houston Chronicle
More than 20 years before Hurricane Harvey, officials in suburban Houston were aware that a heavy storm could cause a reservoir to overflow and inundate nearby homes with water. So they issued a warning to potential home buyers. But they put the warning in an obscure place: deep in the same public land records that list street dimensions and the layout of utilities in a subdivision. Now many of the 3,000 suburban Houston homeowners who were flooded during Harvey question whether local officials did enough to caution them about the dangers of flooding from big rainstorms.
