This animation shows the probability of buildings in downtown Houston, TX being affected by floodwaters during Tropical Storm Imelda. A building’s wetting probability is computed through a combination of hydrologic and hydraulic model interpretations. To see individual timesteps, pause or reduce video speed. This animation shows experimental hydrologic techniques and should not be used for planning purposes.
