Soggy FotoFest
June 10, 2001

Reports about Tropical Storm Allison and Houston's subsequent flooding have appeared in the media on a regular basis since June 9. Devastation, ranging from personal tragedy to major property damage, continues to make the front page. FotoFest's problems, however, were relatively mild compared to others.

The effect of the seven feet of water in FotoFest's office basement and the subsequent mess was captured.

The video below gives you a clear view of the $30,000 damage to frames and exhibition materials, as well as records floating around. Fortunately, no exhibit photography was lost.
