​​​​​DALLAS – ​More than 500,000 Texas homes are at risk of damage from storm surges in the event of a category 5 storm, according to a CoreLogic study. 

Assuming the worst possible damage, rebuilding all the flood-prone homes in Texas would cost more than $103 billion​, said the study. 

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecasts a 75 percent chance that the 2018 hurricane season ​would be of average or above average intensity. ​

The majority of the endangered properties are clustered in the Houston and Beaumont areas, home to nearly seven million people.
