Thirty thousand homes were damaged or destroyed in the storm, and fifty thousand cars were flooded or totaled. The rain that fell set an all-time record for total rainfall recorded from a tropical storm in the US.
On January 13, 2018, we joined a 25-member World Renew needs assessment team that arrived in Brazoria County, Texas, to survey residents about their unmet needs after the storm. The volunteers were ready to get started on the first day of work, but a rare ice storm in Texas delayed our process for two days!
