On Friday’s Houston Matters: Saturday marks 20 years since Tropical Storm Allison made landfall. The storm dropped as much as 40 inches of rain on parts of southeast Texas and Greater Houston, flooding the city in ways only eclipsed by Hurricane Harvey 16 years later. We look back on how the storm affected our lives, what we learned from it, and what we didn’t.

And we discuss The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week.
