After Hurricane Katrina wrecked her home, Tanya Stewart and her family moved to Houston to rebuild. But when Hurricane Harvey came in, one horrific nightmare was replaced by yet another. Again, she found herself in a flooded home. But this time, she was not alone.

Like the 250,000 others who fled New Orleans for Houston after Katrina, Tanya found refuge in this city only to be hit again. “I ain’t waiting for another one,” her mom said. Everyone in her family of 6 felt the same, all of them preparing to pick up their lives and get out of Houston as fast as possible. Everybody, except Tanya.
