    Homes were left uninhabitable by Hurricane Harvey, a Category 4 storm that plowed through southeast Texas in late August, NBC News reported.

    Its floodwaters capsized lives of the comfortable and the struggling, black and white, Latino and Asian. Tens of thousands of people across spectrums of race and income were left without permanent places to live, inspiring a newfound saying: Harvey was the storm that didn’t discriminate.

    That may change now that the water is gone.
