After Hurricane Harvey, Friendswood and other cities and towns had difficult decisions to make: Force homeowners to elevate their homes at a cost of around $100K each, or revert to old flood maps that underestimate your risk of flooding. This article from the Houston Chronicle outlines the issues and I encourage you to read it in full:  After Harvey’s floods, Friendswood will allow residents to rebuild at ground level

The bottom line is, some flood zone maps in Friendswood were rolled back so that homeowner’s were allowed to rebuild without elevating their home. What that means is, your home may show up in Flood Zone X but it is actually at a much greater risk of flooding.

“Their homes would be underwater in rainfall that has a 1 percent chance of happening in any given year – 12 to 14 inches of rain in a day, for most of the Houston area. That’s about five times more likely than Harvey’s rains.”


Bottom line:  If you live in Houston and all surrounding areas, your home IS in a flood zone.
