Harris county is at a very high risk for natural hazards, like tornadoes, hurricane storm surges and floods, and so is Galveston, a report from ATTOM Data Solutions confirmed. Brazoria County is at a high risk – Liberty and Montgomery are at a low one. This is stuff homebuyers are going to want to know.
In each of the six Greater Houston counties evaluated in ATTOM’s report, each has a moderate rate of risk in at least one natural hazard category – though Harris and Galveston are the most exposed.
