Flooding

Flooding causes more damage than any of the other natural disasters in the U.S.  Of course, it has particularly devastating for certain parts of the country. Houston has suffered the most.  Damages from flooding have been greatly exacerbated by poor development practices and the under investment in flood control infrastructure.  With the likelihood of worse flooding in the future, there must be a sustainable, effective public policy that addresses this issue.
