Flooding at Elysian St. and Kelley St. Near Start of Hardy Toll Road, 11 Days after Hurricane Ike, Houston

Fox 26 reporter Isiah Carey finds a lot of water loitering around the intersection of Kelley and Elysian — a full 11 days after the storm:

What I was shocked to see is that 12 feet of water has yet to recede near the beginning of the Hardy Toll Road near 610. . . . The water still looked like a giant swimming pool. It’s a very scary to see. I can’t believe the city’s drainage system hasn’t been able to swallow the water. I think there’s likely a lot of debris at the bottom blocking the sewage system.
