It was another hurricane named Katrina that drew so much attention to inadequate levees in flood-prone areas.
During a nationwide audit of levees, what FEMA found was that some in the Houston area are outdated.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency is calling for all levees in the U.S. to be upgraded.
But that comes with a big price tag.
One drainage district in Brazoria County estimates it'll cost about 4 million to make the upgrades.
Money, the drainage district does not have.
