U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) prepares for Hurricane Harvey.  USACE assets have been prepositioned to provide a swift and effective response to the impending hurricane.
Liaison Officers, team leaders, and a Prime Power Planning and a Response Team from the 249th Engineer Battalion have deployed in support of state Emergency Operations Centers and FEMA Response Nodes. 
Additionally, local USACE Districts are conducting flood-fighting activities such as stockpiling and issuing flood-fighting materials (sandbags and materials/fabrics that keep soil in place) to local government entities in an effort to mitigate the effects of flooding in the area.

Each year, more deaths occur due to flooding than from any other weather related hazard.  Many of these deaths are related to vehicles driving through floodwaters or people walking closely to or in the actual flood.  People underestimate the force and power of water. 

According to the National Weather Service (NWS), flash floods are the most dangerous kind of floods as they combine the destructive power of a flood with incredible speed and unpredictability. Flash flooding by definition is “rapidly rising and MOVING water”. The force of moving water frequently damages roadbeds, sometimes to the point of collapse.  So many unnecessary vehicular flood related deaths occur as a result of motorists driving across flooded roads.
