Be sure read chapter one of your textbook along with the powerpoint presentation located in Module 1 under “Course Content.” Research the historical development of the city of Houston and discuss the historical planning of the city and how it impacted the flooding experienced during Harvey and previous tropical storm events. Discuss what you believe government officials can do differently in the planning of cities to avoid such catastrophes and/or if these types of events are inevitable and if the focus should be on response.
