HARLINGEN – The city of Harlingen is taking steps to improve drainage in order to prevent future flooding.

The floods in June caused more than 14 inches of rain in the Harlingen area.

KRGV’s Cecilia Gutierrez spoke with one Harlingen resident who says he braces himself for the possibility of flooding every time it rains.

Assistant City Manager Nicholas Doss says the drainage project will alleviate flooding in some of the older neighborhoods by expanding the existing storm sewer system.
