Page attributes the buildings’ location in the CBD’s eastern portion for the reason they didn’t flood. The CBD’s west side, says Page, had to contend with runoff from the bayou as well as the heavy rains.

That complex had been open for business despite the estimated 30 inches of rain that fell on the Houston metro area over the weekend.

The tunnel ends at the front of Houston Center, says the source, and the rest of the complex is connected by skybridges.
