No, OP, there isn't any need to worry. Houston is a strong city; it will recover and its legal market will be just fine.
Given the number of posters who've reacted negatively to your question, I wanted to add my own 2¢. While there are many places where your question would be tactless and inappropriate, I don't think thread this is one of them. I, too, have friends (and some extended family) in Houston upon whom Harvey continues to wreak considerable emotional and physical damage. However, it's also my understanding that Biglaw and NALP timelines are marching forward.
I do think your post came off a touch inconsiderate and that you could've worded it better. But I don't think you're a bad person for posting it, and I don't think the inquiry itself reflects poorly on your character. Good luck with the rest of the OCI.
