Residents in the Meyerland area are trying to recover from the second flood in less than a year. On this edition of Houston Matters, we check in with Meyerland residents whom we talked with last year and see how they’re recovering and ask if another flood has dampened their enthusiasm for living there.

Houston Matters offers a free daily, downloadable podcast here, on iTunes, Stitcher and various other podcasting apps.
