There are a lot of variables that go in to this. Around how much are you willing to pay for rent? The closest locations are going to be apartments within the inner loop, especially inside Texas Medical Center as well as locations such as Midtown, Downtown, and the Heights. However, you will be paying significantly more for these inner loop locations. Locations outside the loop will be significantly cheaper, but have a longer commute.

You mentioned the transport system - do you plan on using that solely to get to and from work? That also makes a difference as to whether you should stay inside the loop or not.

In regards to flooding - it is extremely possible that one apartment complex floods, while the other one at the end of the block does not flood. My experience has been the best way to determine flooding of a location is to simply ask those in the area.
