5 Years Later: Houston after Harvey

Five years ago, Houston faced a hurricane that devastated us as a community.

Hurricane Harvey made landfall late on August 25, 2017, and simply stayed over our city. For almost five days, the storm poured almost 50 inches of rain on us.

Homes and businesses were destroyed. Cars were flood and swept away. Heartbreakingly, over 60 lives were lost.

Five years later, our city remembers where we were during Hurricane Harvey and has learn how to better prepare.

Five years later, we’ve rebuilt, recovered and, because of community bonds that were forged in the wake of tragedy, we’ve been reminded of how H-Town supports, loves and grows.

Five years later, after working to cope with the aftermath of the storm, we remain Houston Strong.

Houston Moms has shared tons of content help us all move forward through the pain and anxiety that has stemmed from Hurricane Harvey’s destruction.

Check out our posts and resources as we remember what the Space City endured and what Houstonians continuously work to overcome five years later.
