Harvey Flood Data

Map of Hurricane Harvey flood extent

We are keenly aware from TV news, social media and conversations with friends and family that Hurricane Harvey brought "old testament" style flooding to Texas and southwest Louisina. Lynn Dupont, who serves as the principal planner and GIS coordinator at the New Orleans Regional Planning Commission, has shared several links to online GIS web maps and data portals which provide documentation of the damage. This may be of use to public sector planners in the Lake Charles region and to private-sector practicioners who find themselves involved in disaster recovery work.
