Episode 66

Hurricane Harvey is one of the costliest tropical cyclones on record, stalling out for days over a small area. However, that area was the 4th largest city in the United States: Houston, Texas. Communities and government agencies had to come together to mitigate Harvey’s unrelenting rainfall that was nearly 5 feet in some areas. Today, we have Jeff Lindner, nicknamed the “Hero of Harvey,” who worked tirelessly as a meteorologist for the Harris County Flood Control District. We’ll ask him about his experience living and working in Houston during Harvey and what the city has done since to prevent another flooding catastrophe.
