Flood Damaged Homes

Hello, I am a Graduate Architect at the Gulf Coast Community Design Studio, an outreach and research arm of Mississippi State University's College of Art, Architecture and Design. We are beginning a research project focused on cataloging and possibly testing retrofit options for homes susceptible to flooding. As part of that process, and in order to define need, I was looking for data as to the number of homes impacted in Houston from Hurricane Harvey. Not only a total number of households affected, but also the number of homes flooded within flood zones (since we presume many were outside of designated zones), and possibly number of households having flood insurance. Any similar datasets would be helpful. Thanks for any assistance you can lend.
