Before Hurricane Harvey, in the Houston neighborhood of Meyerland, the streets and sidewalks were crowded with neighbors and families out walking around, and kids riding bikes after school and work. It was a normal sight for what was a lively community.

But after the storm, many houses sit vacant, and Meyerland and neighborhoods like it are now eerily silent.
