We all saw the photos of hundreds of cars under water in Houston this week. About 30 people have died in floods that hit Oklahoma, Texas and northern Mexico over the past five days, and at least a dozen more people are missing.

In our neighborhood last night, motorists ignored barricaded roads and had to be rescued from high water. It happened at Hampton and Illinois, and it happened on 12th at Polk, where these photos were taken. All photos courtesy of the Bishop Arts Neighborhood Association.
