The incredible videos sent to us by viewers during Friday night's flooding really painted the picture of nature's furious force.

From a dumpster floating down an apartment drive, to cars being pushed onto Southwest Parkway, the flooding in and around College Station was something we haven't seen in years.

Tai Lee, the owner of Veritas Bistro in College Station also got a first hand look at flood waters rising in the retention pond in front of his restaurant.

"This whole area was actually flooded and some of the water was going back to the parking lot," said Lee.

Not since 2007 has Tai seen the water in the pond reach this level.

"Guests were more worried than us," said Lee

Despite springing a few leaks in his restaurant and having a flood in the front yard of his business, the restaurants along restaurant row made it through the storm.

"It did its job so we're very blessed to have seen it working."
