Cannabis For A Cause :: Hurricane Harvey was an extremely destructive Atlantic hurricane which became the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States since Wilma in 2005, ending a record 12-year span in which no hurricanes made landfall at such an intensity in the country. In a four-day period, many areas received more than 40 inches (100 cm) of rain as the system meandered over eastern Texas and adjacent waters, causing catastrophic flooding. With peak accumulations of 64.58 in (164.0 cm), Harvey is the wettest tropical cyclone on record in the United States. The resulting floods inundated hundreds of thousands of homes, displaced more than 30,000 people, and prompted more than 17,000 rescues.

Texas is facing a critical shortage of manufactured housing and the cost of even the most basic units to temporarily house the thousands of Texans displaced by Harvey can cost as much as $140,000, Land Commissioner George P. Bush told a legislative panel on Monday.

“It is almost becoming as expensive to get a manufactured house as it is to build a home,” Bush told the House Urban Affairs Committee at special hearing at the University of Houston.

The Urban Affairs panel and the House Appropriations Committee held hearings in nearby ballrooms at a hotel on campus to get an assessment on what is being done and how much it might cost to rebuild the Texas Coast after the worst natural disaster to strike the region in memory.

Bush, a first-term Republican, was tapped by Gov. Greg Abbott to coordinate the state-federal response aimed at meeting the immediate need for housing. The land office is acting as the liaison between local officials and the Federal Emergency Management Administration to determine how best to either get people back into their homes or into alternative accommodations.

The bottom line, Bush said, is that it could take from seven months to two-and-a-half years to get people permanently situated.
