After Harvey, thousands of homeowners learned they were in a floodplain.

Nearly three months after Hurricane Harvey, Harris County is proposing a dramatic overhaul of its floodplain regulations that could force developers to build new homes up to 10 feet above current requirements.

County officials are largely intent on swapping out the use of 100-year flood levels for regulations and use 500-year flood levels instead, opting to force new building construction to prepare for much more severe storms.

A 100-year event refers to a storm so severe that it has a 1 percent chance of occurring in any given year, and would equate to between 12 and 14 inches of rainfall in 24 hours.

A 500-year event has a 0.2 percent chance of occurring in any year, and would equate to between 17 and 20 inches of rainfall in 24 hours.
