The neighborhoods near Onion Creek in South Austin were overwhelmed in the early morning hours of October 31 when water surged past its banks and flooded their streets, filling homes within minutes. This was a historic flash flood with more force and volume of water than the city has ever seen.  It was up to Code Compliance officers to determine what homes were livable and which were uninhabitable.  Producer – Jonathan Uhl
