It seems like every time thereâs even moderately heavy rain here in Houston, we experience some measure of flooding. Thatâs to be expected when you live in a very flat city thatâs only 43 feet above sea level. Still, while flooding may not be preventable, there may be steps to take to mitigate it.
Today we explore what can be doneÂ with roads and drainage systems to help curb flooding in Houston. We welcome your questions for Houstonâs Public Works and Engineering Director Daniel Kruger, andÂ ReBuild HoustonÂ Executive Dale Rudick. We also explore what flood insurance does and does not cover, and what you should do if you need to file a claim.
