I'm a 2nd generation of born Houstonians. In a time line beginning 1935, I have studied when, where, and why Houston has flood water damage. In 1935, Buffalo Bayou breeched it's banks, resulting in downtown being cut thru by raging water until it reached the ship channel. In 1941, reservoirs were plowed north of the city where Buffalo Bayou began. They were plowed in Katy, Texas. At that time, Katy was ranch land. I had a great uncle who owned a large portion of ranch land and I actually was able to pull up documents regarding purchase of easements on at least 2 occasions.
