A Hard Rain

Hous­ton—thou­sands of homes near Lake Hous­ton were ooded af­ter Hurricane Har­vey struck in late Au­gust. Har­vey was the rst ma­jor hurricane to make land­fall in the U.S. in more than a decade and the wettest on record, dis­plac­ing more than 30,000 peo­ple and caus­ing at least 47 deaths. Pre­lim­i­nary es­ti­mates sug­gest the storm could be the costli­est nat­u­ral dis­as­ter in U.S. his­tory, with a price tag of up to $190 bil­lion.
