DISCUSSION: As we turn the clocks back to the first week of June 2001, we arrive at a very historic and troubling period of weather history for the greater metropolitan area which composes the city of Houston, Texas. During the earlier parts of June 2001, the gradually weakening remnants of Tropical Storm Allison began to move ashore into parts of southern/southeastern Texas. As this process lingered on for some time, the results were robust and memorable across this part of the south-central United States. These results were best characterized by a prolonged period of heavy, flooding rainfall which caused the majority of various travel into and out of the greater Houston metropolitan area to be suspended for days in many cases.
For the people living in this part of the south-central United States, this was a real-life nightmare and worst case scenario which came to fruition. Moreover, the impacts from this major flooding event were long-lasting in many cases which led to a long period of vast flooding insurance claims boiling to the surface from a plethora of large-scale residential and general infrastructural flooding damage.
