I remember talking with someone from EPA at one of the ESIP winter 
meetings about the problems that they had during Katrina because the lists 
of problematic sites (chemical production, users of significant amounts, 
brown sites) were siloed and not geo-located.

It would be interesting to hear how well things went this time. (how well 
the changes after Katrina worked, and lessons they learned this time 
around, etc.)

>> On August 25, 2017, Hurricane Harvey made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane near Rockport, TX. This slow-moving storm hovered near Victoria, TX, inundating nearby areas from Corpus Christi to Lake Charles, LA, with record rainfall. Harvey’s staying power resulted in widespread and catastrophic flooding in multiple areas, leading to discussions about the effectiveness of evacuation protocols, planning and managing impacts of urban flooding, and the use of social media to guide disaster rescue efforts, particularly in large urban centers.
>> This session, potentially organized as multiple sessions, seeks a wide breadth of contributions focusing on the events of Hurricane Harvey, including crowdsourced data and social media in disaster response; policy implications; high resolution remote sensing; flooding and infrastructure damage; impacts on the environment and human health; changing coastal landscapes; oceanographic, atmospheric, and climatic factors contributing to the storm; data access and assimilation; HPC and cloud computing for real time analysis.
