    Shocking Video! It's scary to see what a bit of rain can actually do!

    Funny thing is, it looks like most things are still running.

    Thats nothing, in 2001 there was a MAJOR rainstorm in Houston that caused some SERIUOS flooding. I was working at an internet service provider at the time that did a lot of work with schools (you had to be a teacher/student etc to qualify for our internet service) A lot of our POPS were located at schools and we had a few in downtown Houston in a couple of the basements of the big high rise buildings.

    anyway this flood was so bad that MILLIONS of dollars in equipment was lost, A lot of the big business in downtown Houston had their server rooms in the basements of some of the high rises, these rooms were completely underwater.
