From Texas Standard:

Up to 500,000 cars took on water during Hurricane Harvey. Not having a vehicle in car-dependent Texas could be a significant hardship. And those looking for a used car to replace a flooded one should be wary of buying storm-damaged rides.

From Texas Standard:

When Hurricane Harvey made landfall, it flattened places like Rockport and Portland. But the massive damage in Houston and the Golden Triangle area came from flooding that occurred after Harvey had been downgraded from a hurricane-force storm.
