Man on the Street: Students share Harvey experiences

Houston was devastated by the worst flooding to hit Houston in late August as Hurricane Harvey slammed the coast and shattered flood records.

The University of Houston canceled all classes after 1 p.m. Friday, Aug. 25. Category 4 Hurricane Harvey made landfall that night. By Saturday morning, Harvey had calmed to a Category 2, before slowing to a Category 1 hurricane Sunday.

However, the following days brought disastrous flooding to Houston and UH.

Houston suffered as much as $75 billion in damages, according to estimates by Moody’s Analytics and Enki Research. Ed Emmett, the director of the Harris County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, estimated that more than 30,000 houses were destroyed in the storm, according to coverage by ABC.
