Five years later, where do things stand? “Below the Waterlines: Houston after Hurricane Harvey” is a multi-media project that looks at how well our region has recovered and how prepared it is for the next storm. Houston Public Media has produced a five-part podcast, an eight-part radio series, a one-hour radio documentary, and written web stories for each episode that pull together data analysis, photos, and videos on topics ranging from green infrastructure solutions to home buyouts. Find all five episodes and read each story below. Email us your feedback and ideas for follow-up stories as we continue to cover flooding in the Houston region.
