Houston to consider underground tunnels to help prevent flooding

Southeastern Texas is one of a handful of regions bracing for this year's hurricane season. Harris and Galveston counties had severe flooding after Hurricane Harvey dropped more than 60 inches of rain last August. The National Hurricane Center calls Harvey the second costliest hurricane in American history.

Officials are searching for ways to avoid future damage including one advocated by the Greater Houston Flood Mitigation Consortium which takes a look at a system under consideration: underground tunnels.
