Houstonians know the human and economic costs of severe weather. Floods in 2015 and 2016 caused 16 deaths and over $1 billion in damage. Additionally, the entire coastal region is particularly vulnerable to the threat of storm surge from a powerful hurricane.
In order to address these issues, Houston City Council Members David W. Robinson and Dave Martin and the AIA Houston Chapter Urban Design Committee are hosting an event featuring two panel discussions on flooding and storm surge. Experts from academia, government and advocacy groups will shed light on these challenges and discuss possible solutions.
The program takes place this Wednesday, April 5, beginning at 6 p.m. with remarks from Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner.
The event is full and registration is closed, however, there will be a live stream of the event posted on www.facebook.com/dwr4hou that is open and free to the public.
