Hurricane Harvey Deaths – CWEB.com
A housing crisis is starting to grip thousands of other families in south-east Texas as the floodwaters ebb away, with a death toll put at 60 on Monday.
More than 180,000 houses in the Houston area have been badly damaged, with only a fraction of occupants owning any flood insurance. Under the Texas property code, if a rental premises is “totally unusable” due to an external disaster then either the landlord or tenant can terminate the lease through written notice.
While we track Hurricane Irma as it approaches the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, the death toll from Hurricane Harvey continues to steadily rise (now 60).
