I have lived in Cypress for over 40 years. I have never flooded. The water came within 1 inch from flooding my house from Harvey. When I first moved here, we never had flood problems. The Nine Bar Ranch was in Cypress. There were a lot of farms and ranches in the area. Plenty of area soaked up rain.
But TxDOT keeps pouring concrete and making more freeway bypasses around here. When they build a freeway, subdivisions and shopping centers will follow.
Why were builders allowed to make hills and build subdivisions next to Cypress Creek? If this continues I am sure I will flood in the next flood.
