It's been nearly 10 years since Tropical Storm Allison devastated the Houston area with 40 inches of rain.

The floodwaters shut down hospitals, destroyed thousands of homes and killed 23 people in Texas. The storm caused flooding the first time it passed over the bayou city on June 4, 2001. But the worst flooding came a few days later when it turned around and targeted Houston again.

One place that had to deal with flooding is KHOU 11's own newroom, which in some parts was completely submerged in water. Click the video above to see the extent of the damage.
