Below the Waterlines: Houston after Hurricane Harvey marks five years since the region's worst flooding disaster. It's a multi-media project that looks at how well Houston has recovered from Harvey and how prepared it is for the next storm. We produced a five episode podcast, an eight-part series broadcast on Houston Public Media, a one-hour radio special, and written web stories for each episode that pull together data, photos, and videos on topics ranging from green infrastructure solutions to home buyouts. Find all five episodes and read each story by clicking on the link above. Email us your feedback and ideas for follow-up stories as we continue to cover flooding in the Houston region.
After spending the past several months trying to answer whether Houston is better prepared for the next major storm, we discovered the answer was not so simple. Over the course of this podcast, you've heard reporters at Houston Public media analyze data, speak with residents who are still suffering and ones who have recovered and moved on, and ask local officials some hard questions. In this last Bonus episode, hear our reporters share their key takeaways, surprises, and what questions still linger.
