HOUSTON - The latest addition to the city's "Harvey By The Numbers" online project is a map showing FEMA data on the severest flooding in Houston and beyond from Hurricane Harvey, combined with income level data for each U.S. Census tract.
"As the city continues to keep Houstonians up to date on 'what happened and how we're responding,' the new map is another compelling piece of information that helps us understand the flood and our massive recovery efforts," Mayor Sylvester Turner said. "Different parts of the city suffered differently, yet we leave no neighborhood behind as the recovery progresses one day at time."
The map can be found online at https://houstonrecovers.org/numbers/ under the "Damage" tab. Other tabs are "Response," "Debris Removal" and "Other Resources."
The map was developed by Bloomberg Associates, a non-profit organization that advises cities on how to most effectively deal with complex challenges.
