HOUSTON - Do you know what would happen to your home if a powerful hurricane made landfall in your area? The answers might surprise you.
Rice University engineers have created a database that gives Harris County property owners a better idea of how a hurricane might impact their home.
The storm risk calculator is easy to use. You simply type in your address and a color-coded map will reveal your risk for wind damage, storm surge and power outages. The information is based on historical data and the size of the storm. If a hurricane is approaching the Gulf Coast, the information will be updated every three hours.
