I make the comment two days before Harvey hit land to release water in the reservoir but no one pay heed. The multi-million home estates got flooded because after Harvey left 3 days later and the reservoir release water. This are area West of Gassner and South of I-10.

Now, on 9/5/17 the TV news is saying that there is a class action lawsuit for multi billion dollars against the party who did not act days before Harvey hit.

I was wonder what are those who responsible were doing or thinking 2 days before Harvey landfall. Were they thinking that let wait and fill up the dam first because Houston is in a draught? Or they are thinking the reservoir has lot of room to accommodate the 55" of rainfall all over Houston.

What ever it is the reason, clearly somebody were indecision and incompetent.

This should be a lesson for all the states that faces future hurricane. Those who are responsible for the dam / reservoir should act to release the water days before hurricane hit.

As Houston grew, officials ignored 'once-in-a-lifetime' chance to spare thousands from flooding

Comparison of the big Allison flood (2001) and Harvey (2017) across the Houston area. There IS no comparison. Entire county 30+ inches.

Re: August 2017: Harvey/Catastrophic Flood/Recovery

Postby srainhoutx » Fri Sep 29, 2017 9:01 am

As we end September, I would like to share some personal thoughts regarding Post Harvey and the amount of Recovery our Region has yet to face. Daily I am in Recovery Areas that were highly impacted by Flood Waters. I have personally been into homes that had a minimum of 5 feet of water standing in homes for a couple of weeks before the waters receded.

Everyone that went through Harvey is experiencing some form of emotional stress as well as many with extreme financial stress as they face in rebuilding. Some of our neighbors will not rebuild, particularly those that have endured previous flooding the last 3 years.

I encourage those that can help, to reach out to your family, friends, colleagues and extended family with a kind word, ask what can I do to help, ask what do you need. It could be as simple as giving the families a break with a night out for dinner, offering to watch children so that the adults can have a date night. It’s these little things that ease the stress of the moment and offer hope of a normal life in the future. More than anything, be patient and kind with each other. I know that the Recovery and Rebuilding phase is going to take many months, if not years for some.

Also take time to hold our children closely and remind them that better days are ahead. Weather worries are strong in our Region. Many have become afraid of the sound of Thunder and heavy rainfall. I personally am being very sensitive to our potential rainfall outlooks and do my best to be honest, realistic and encouraging to those I deal with daily that the flood waters are not rising to the levels we experienced with Harvey.

This has been a once in a lifetime experience for many of us and will continue to be. We will be here on the KHOU Weather Forum daily offering discussions about our weather, whatever it brings. I want to thank Everyone including our Staff of Moderators for stepping up over the past month. I will be around, but my postings will continue to be limited due to the ongoing Recovery and Rebuilding of our neighbor’s homes and lives following the Harvey Event.

The Weather Prediction Center issues its Final Rainfall Report on Hurricane Harvey. Some very interesting graphics that Forecaster Roth worked up showing there are simply no comparisons to Claudette (1979) and Allison (2001) due to the expansive nature of the 6 day Historic Flooding caused by Harvey as SE Texas.
