With nearly 600 evictions filed last week alone, the Houston area still leads the rest of the country in the number of evictions filed since the CDC eviction moratorium took effect at the start of September. “We are still seeing more evictions in Houston and Harris County than in any big city in the country,” said attorney Dana Karni with Lone Star Legal Aid.
