Hurricane Harvey flooded multiple Houston-area construction sites this weekend.

Karen Kershner of specialty construction contractor Slack and Co., confirmed that the Ronald McDonald House construction site and the Kindaid School site are both “severely underwater,” Chron reported.

While the equipment on these two sites was moved before the storm rolled in, many other sites just moved their equipment to higher ground. As of now, there are no updates on 19 other sites in the area, as construction crews cannot get to them to evaluate their condition at this time. But Kershner believes they are likely flooded. “It looks like every job site is going to be under water,” she said.
