Why mothers opt to stay in flood-prone Houston neighborhoods

A new book, ” In Too Deep ” (University of California Press, $29.95, 268 pages) from Rice University sociologist Rachel Tolbert Kimbro, dean of the School of Social Sciences, explores the lives of a group of mothers in a small Houston neighborhood that has been repeatedly rocked by catastrophic flooding—the 2015 Memorial Day flood, the 2016 Tax Day flood and Hurricane Harvey. It also looks at how climate change—and the catastrophic events it can cause—affects them and their children.
