Tropical Storm Harvey dropped more than 50 inches of rain in Houston and the surrounding area, which has caused “life-threatening” flooding. Thousands of people have been rescued from their flooded homes and at least 30 people have died. But for residents of the Greenspoint community, the unprecedented storm hits them when they have still not yet fully recovered from another catastrophic deluge last year.

In April 2016, during a storm that was dubbed the Tax Day Flood, the Houston area saw 15 inches of rain in 24 hours, with most of it falling within a 10-hour period. Hundreds of people were rescued from the floods and eight people were killed. The devastation was citywide, but Greenspoint — an impoverished community with more than one of three residents living below the federal poverty line — bore the brunt of it. Alarmingly, 72 percent of Greenpoint’s multi-family housing is in a flood zone, so during the Tax Day Flood around 2,000 of those apartment homes flooded — some were still waiting for repair when Harvey struck.
