Hurricane Harvey - Help Houston homeowners that were flooded for the common good.
This petition made change with 2,144 supporters!
In the aftermath of hurricane Harvey, thousands of Houston homes were flooded due to the release of flood water from the Addicks and Barker dams located in the north-west of the city. The water was released to avoid potential damage to a greater number of homes. This release flooded our neighborhood and thousands of adjacent homes, but saved tens of thousands of homes from more extensive damage.
Most of the affected homes were located within an area designated by FEMA as "the 500 years flood plane," where flood insurance is not recommended. Accordingly, most affected homeowners did not carry flood insurance.
FEMA law offers a maximum compensation of $34,000 per homeowner, which is unlikely to be sufficient for restoration. Therefore, homeowners whose houses were flooded for the common good need your help.

Statement by the Army Corps of Engineers:
"Posted 8/27/2017 - Release no. 17-030 - GALVESTON, Texas– Because of the extreme nature of the ongoing weather event in the Houston area, Army Corps of Engineers officials have determined that they will likely have to release intermittent amounts of water from both Addicks and Barker reservoirs to reduce the risk to the Houston metropolitan area".
