Residents of southwest Houston are cleaning up from flooding today. Saturday night's flash floods ruined cars, flooring, and any possessions that were less than 8 inches off the floors of most houses. The Associated Press reported that heavy rains brought a deluge of water on Saturday night, which flowed through the streets "like a hurricane". Residents blamed the sewage system for backing up in the heavy rains. Looks like Houston plumbers have a project on their hands.
