As Hurricane Harvey continues to dump staggering amounts of rain over Houston, KHOU-TV, 11 News, one of the city’s local TV news broadcasting stations, was forced to evacuate as flood waters surged in.
The staff first evacuated to the second floor after flood water poured in during a live broadcast.
But soon, even with floodgates set up around the building, water started gushing into the newsroom. At that point, station staff made the decision to evacuate instead.
I can only think of Saving Private Ryan. The last man standing blows the bridge before the Nazis take it. The code word is Alamo. #khou
