In August 2017, Hurricane Harvey poured over 50 inches of rain on southeast Texas and became the most destructive storm in the city of Houston's history. Damaged & Defiant offers readers a view into Hurricane Harvey's development and Houston's struggles through two story maps, each accompanied by numerous images and photographs. The first story map focuses on the storm itself, using interactive maps and satellite video clips to show the hurricane's path and its effects. The second story map centers on how the people of Houston experienced Hurricane Harvey, offering readers "day-by-day [...] snapshots [that] capture both the progression and the vast sweep of how Houstonians faced the disaster." Visitors to Damaged & Defiant's story maps will also find information on flood bond projects and links to in-depth articles on various aspects of Hurricane Harvey (though, it should be noted that some articles may require a subscription). Created in December 2017, Damaged & Defiant was created collaboratively between The Dawn Project (led by Carroll Parrott Blue), the Houston Chronicle, and several other organizations.
