The City of Houston is asking for your help to evaluate the city's new Storm Risk Calculator website. This website provides residents information about the risk they and their homes face from severe weather, like hurricanes.
In the event of an approaching hurricane or tropical storm, the website will provide information by address on the risk of damage from rainfall flooding and/or surge, risk of damage from wind and the risk of power failure.
To help us make the website ready for the 2012 hurricane season, please take a few minutes to visit the Storm Risk Calculator website, http://risk.rtsnets.com/ and use its different features.
If you have any comments, email them to Professor Bob Stein, stein (at) rice.edu or Sharon Nalls, Office of Emergency Mananagment, sharon.nalls (at) houstontx.gov.
Thank you for helping Houston be more prepared for next year's hurricane season.
