 This video introduces the Coastal Atlas, developed by Texas A&M University at Galveston, which allows users to see the extent of flood inundation and monetary loss that could be caused by future storms. It also shows how devastating major hurricanes have been to the Greater Houston Area and brings to life the potential damage of the next big storm. It also shows how a system such as the Coastal Spine and Ike Dike concept would mitigate storm surge.

Dr. Robert W. (Bill) Gilmer delivered a very informative message on March 24, 2015, about Houston’s economy, particularly how the price of oil affects Houston's upstream companies on its west side and the downstream industry on its east side, before a large mid-day gathering of members of the Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership.  Attached is his presentation titled "Oil in Freefall! And the Economic Outlook for Houston."  Gilmer is the director of the Institute for Regional Forecasting in the University of Houston’s Bauer College of Business. BAHEP’s Annual State of the Economy luncheon, presented by the organization’s Small Business Committee, was held at NASA Johnson Space Center's Gilruth Center.
