Employees at KHOU-TV, the city's CBS affiliate, were forced to evacuate to higher ground after rising water from the Buffalo Bayou submerged much of its office and studios. When the station also briefly lost its broadcasting signal, reporters streamed on Facebook.
The station received technical assistance from WFAA-TV, its sister station in Dallas, a control room at CBS News in New York and Houston Public Media. KHOU is using a makeshift studio provided by the public media organization.
"We are back!," the station's assistant news director tweeted Sunday afternoon.
