Two rescue boats from the Georgetown Sheriff's Dept. help evacuate residents from their homes in East Houston on Aug. 29, 2017 as Hurricane Harvey brought record floods to the area.

Flood experts, state officials and meteorologists are starting to get the full scope of Hurricane Harvey's behavior and the cost of damage it inflicted on the Texas Coast.

Eric Berger is a longtime journalist with a meteorology degree, who created the digital news startup called Space City Weather.

In this week's Friday Conversation, he talked to KERA's Rick Holter about the stark choices the Gulf Coast faces. 

  In this conversation, you’ll hear:

  • An update on Houston after unprecedented flooding.
  • Potential plans to approach zoning and rebuilding efforts.
  • Berger’s professional and personal stake in the storm.
