    Looking at pictures and descriptions of flooding in the Galleria, I would guess that the Tesla Gallery and chargers will be out of commission indefinitely. The first floor of the parking garage is under water.

    I know some owners trying to make their way through from the Columbus or Huntsville SCs to Lake Charles occasionally grab some juice at the gallery chargers, so for the foreseeable future you will need to make other plans.

    Holy cow! How did you get that pic? That looks like the parking garage - the Tesla gallery is not down there - much higher up. Don't think it was flooded was it? But Tesla charging/parking area was down there - I bet they get it back up fairly quickly though - what could be damaged but a few outlets?

    I wondered about San Marcos and Columbus. I stopped for lunch yesterday on my way from Atlanta to Virginia and saw scenes from San Marcos (rescues) on CNN. I remember Columbus equipment being elevated (I assume for potential river flooding).

    Be safe everyone in these areas...

    Wow.
    Unreal amount of water and damage.
    Hope all in Houston are safe, well and dry and things get back to normal (soon).

    That water level pictured (handrails of the escalator landing) is below the outlets and conduits and breaker boxes. So if it wasn't higher than shown, consequences could be minimal.

    OK, good. There's a level below the Tesla area; that may be what we see wetted in the picture.
