One of the nation’s largest cities experienced what meteorologists are calling a one-hundred-year flood.

Late last night, three separate thunderstorm systems converged over Space City to form one incredibly nasty storm. For weeks Houston and other parts of the Lone Star State have been pelted with storm system after storm system, leaving large swaths of affected areas waterlogged and unable to absorb more rainfall.

Leaving two dead, lightning storms and torrential rainfall pounded Houston for most of the night. Some parts of the city, particularly southwest Houston, saw more than ten inches of rain in as little as five hours. Courts and schools were closed Tuesday with much of the city still unnavigable.

This is how it began:

As pretty as the lightning shows have been, they lose something when they become a daily occurrence. #houstonweather

Blamed for multiple apartment fires, the lightning show continued throughout the duration of the storm.

According to the National Weather Service, some areas received more than 10 inches of rain:

Footage taken by a drone captured some of the devastation in southwest Houston early Tuesday morning:

Houston’s shopping Mecca, The Galleria, flooded leaving employees stranded inside:

Basketball fans were stranded in the Toyota Center after the Rockets’ win in the Western Conference Finals fourth game, as just about every road out of downtown was under water. Houston Rockets player Dwight Howard stuck around for a while. The Houston Chronicle reported:

Most Rockets players headed for the exits, too, but Howard opted to wait it out after hearing from friends about treacherous road conditions.

“There’s no need to try to push it,” Howard said. “One of my friends just hit me up and said he’s stuck on the highway now. I don’t think it’s smart for anybody to try to be out on this weather.”

Howard waved to fans as he stayed on the court, but he was getting antsy for some entertainment as he waited.

“They’re showing the Weather Channel right now,” he said. “They need to put on a movie or something.”

I’m a native Houstonian and Houston is still my home break. Thankfully, we’re high and dry. No loss, no damage, no flooding. Leaving home today was completely out of the question though. My heart goes out to those affected by last night’s sudden and awful storm. Meteorologists predict more rain this afternoon or evening, but we’re hoping and praying Houston gets a reprieve.
