Flash floods across Texas, left workers stranded inside a Houston mall Tuesday as waters rose up escalators and across parking decks. The images are striking, if not terrifying.
Echoing scenes from the movie "Titanic," Galleria mall employees took to social media to share videos and pictures of the water seeping and (sometimes) rushing inside.
Escape from the parking lot seemed impossible, with waters creeping nearly to the ceilings.
"We were headed out to our cars and found we couldn't get out," store worker Karina Hernandez told NBC News. "The first-level garage was completely flooded. There was literally no way out."
Water can also be spotted rushing by glass doors at the bottom of the escalators.
Here are some of the most dramatic images and videos from the Galleria.
