Hurricane Harvey of 2017 tied with 2005's Hurricane Katrina as the costliest tropical cyclone on record, inflicting $125 billion in damage.

This course features streaming video and audio (as well as downloadable MP3 audio) presentations from a live CLE seminar originally conducted by the Houston Bar Association on April 6, 2018.
