HOUSTON – Several roads and a freeway in east Houston are experiencing massive flooding after a 96-inch water main break on Thursday afternoon, according to the city of Houston.
People have taken to social media to comment on the condition and the fact that only in Houston does it flood on a perfect day.
Here are what some people are saying:
How does Houston find a way to flood even when there’s no rain? pic.twitter.com/jS3C0QcnXp— Kaylan (@SpecialKayAlDay) February 27, 2020
Y'all.— #BlackBookBloomberg🏳️🌈🌹 (@RealHtownDude) February 27, 2020
The City of Houston has no water.
A water main that supplies 50% of our water? Has broken.
Flooding has happened.
This was avoidable.
Our infrastructure is crumbling.🏚
Our federal government has allowed it.
We should be angry.
Heard about a water main break... is Houston pregnant or something?— ed$ (@edendollasign) February 27, 2020

There's three water plants for all of Houston (Kingwood, Clear Lake, Ship Channel). My bet is this has taken one of these completely off the system. FUN!— Chris White (@beer_chris) February 27, 2020
