HOUSTON - The days of Six Flags in Houston are long gone but after storms this past week, you'd think Water World has washed ashore.

From outside to inside, water was everywhere.

At Saturday night's Astros game at Minute Maid Park, many couldn't believe they were seeing flooding inside the building as water gushed up from the floor like a geyser.

One play nobody probably expected to see from outfield, water coming in where the little Union Station train passes.

Quite strange to see for a ballpark stadium built to withstand hurricane force winds, right? Outside the Houston Museum of Natural Science, a manhole cover was blown as floodwaters continued to rise.

When the weather's this bad, only a few places to be indoors to make the time pass, like shopping.

Even people at Baybrook Mall felt like the sky was falling. A Sleep Number's store ceiling began to cave in, and water trickling in could be heard like a bathroom shower.

Those attending Bellaire High School's graduation Saturday night weren't exempt from the storm's "passing." Water fell inside NRG Stadium, delaying the ceremony.

To make light of all the heavy rainfall, it's kind of funny the very places people took shelter, had serious clouds hovering over.

Water above, water below. For many folks, no matter their location, they were still caught inside and out.
