Dorian a good reminder for Texans about flood insurance


As Hurricane Dorian moves in on Florida, some are calling it a wakeup call for Texas.

It's been two years since Hurricane Harvey devastated the Houston area, as some parts of the city got 51 inches of rain. But time passes, and people get complacent. And Mark Hanna with the Insurance Council of Texas says the numbers prove it.

"We aw an uptick after Harvey. Now it's starting to decline. A couple of years is all it takes for people to decide that maybe they won't get hit again," Hanna said.

If you're looking into flood insurance, remember that it takes thirty days for it to go into effect.

September is prime season for hurricanes to track our way, and the Atlantic season runs though November.
