HUMBLE, Texas - While things have improved in Houston because the water has moved out of a lot of neighborhoods, we're getting a closer look at what's left in its wake.

In the Texas town of Humble, we're getting an incredible look at the power of the floodwaters. About 150 yards of a concrete median on the Eastex Freeway (U.S. Route 59) was thrust aside as if it was a tinker toy.

This happened on a major thoroughfare into Houston. A Texas Department of Transportation spokesperson said crews have begun work to repair the damaged median but could not provide an estimate as to when it would be fixed.
