New Hurricane Research Center Coming to Houston

A new hurricane research center backed by Texas universities will examine flood mitigation, hurricane modeling and public policy so that officials can better anticipate and respond to Gulf Coast storms.

The University of Houston will lead the institute. Rice University is among the other Texas schools participating, and two institutions from Florida will also contribute.
