Après Allison, le Déluge

In June 2001, Tropical Storm Allison caused major flooding in Houston, TX. The downtown area of the city, where many of its cultural organizations are located, is bordered by a bayou. Water backed up into the extensive underground walkways and parking tunnels of the city center and the basements of the Wortham Center, home of Houston Ballet and Houston Grand Opera; the Alley Theatre; and Jones Hall, where the Houston Symphony is housed.
