Flood Threatens MoTab Houston Concert
Officials of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir are scrambling to find a new venue for the choir's planned concert Friday, June 15th in the wake of flooding this past weekend. The floods, caused by heavy rains, hit much of downtown Houston, flooding three major theaters in the city's Theater District, leaving as much as 6 feet of water in basements. Jones Hall, where the Mormon Tabernacle Choir was to perform, the Wortham Theater Center and the Alley Theatre were all closed because of the flooding.
