USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - FRONT PAGE -

More than a year af­ter Hur­ri­cane Har­vey’s de­struc­tive flood­ing, the task of re­mov­ing downed trees and other storm de­bris that had blocked the Hous­ton area’s 22 wa­ter­sheds is fin­ished. The Harris County Flood Con­trol Dis­trict said Fri­day that it’s re­moved about 40,000 tons of de­bris since Har­vey flooded Hous­ton in Au­gust 2017. The flood con­trol dis­trict has spent $8.9 mil­lion on the cleanup.
