Conclusion

You have completed an exploration of flooding. You have learned from the past and should now be better prepared for the future. Flooding, our area's major natural disaster, is inevitable in Houston!

Be sure to tell your family and friends about what you have learned. Although we can do very little to prevent or control flooding, we CAN and MUST be prepared for the inevitable floods and attempt to reduce the level of risk and damage to our lives and property.

I hope that you will continue using this resource.
