Houston’s Memorial Day flood

It’s been surreal watching national news coverage of Texas’s flooding from the Memorial Day weekend. My hometown of Houston was hard-hit, especially the southwest side of the 610 Loop. Using Google and Twitter searching, I was able to find some pretty incredible photos and videos of flooding taken by local residents. Here’s a small sampling of what I found.
