Cullum Clark, director of SMU Economics Center, lends expertise to Dallas Morning News

Dallas Morning News Originally Posted: September 2, 2017 After Harvey's destruction, will a new and different Houston emerge? In the end, Hurricane Harvey’s most powerful weapon was the rain. For five days, the storm hovered over Houston and southeast Texas, dumping more than 50 inches of water in the state’s most populated region. Inch by accumulated inch, more than 20 trillion gallons of water pooled in southeast Texas, swamping hundreds of thousands of homes, cutting off roads, displacing more than 30,000 people and spurring more than 13,000 rescues.

But Harvey’s long-term legacy might not be the deaths caused or even the destruction created but its economic, social [...]

He believes Dallas could see more than 100,000 evacuees. He [...]
