Harvey by the Numbers

As Harvey ravaged the Houston area, City departments responded to help meet the needs of residents. As Houston recovers, the City is working to help get Houston back to business. Chart the response and recovery through interactive maps at houstonrecovers.org/numbers/

"Our city has experienced historic devastation with Hurricane Harvey, but it has also shown us the best in humanity. Throughout Houston's history, we have faced challenges, and built a city that is even better, and more resilient. This time is no different. Working together, neighbor helping neighbor, Houston will emerge better than it was before."
