While many Houstonians have begun the arduous cleanup effort of their homes and businesses, there are still plenty of people around the region whose homes and businesses are still under water almost a week after the rains stopped. Plenty of those are located in the areas around the Addicks and Barker reservoirs.

We learn the latest and check in on the status of our over-taxed flood system in Greater Houston from Jeff Lindner from the Harris County Flood Control District.
