The Nation

June 28, 1989

Remnants of Tropical Storm Allison moved into eastern Texas and western Louisiana, still dumping heavy rain and triggering thunderstorms after hitting the Houston area with more than 10 inches of rain. Downpours flooded homes and streets, forcing at least 800 people into Red Cross shelters. At least two fatalities were blamed on the storm, which was downgraded to a tropical depression in the morning. Harris County Sheriff's Department divers pulled a man's body from rain-swollen Spring Creek. On Monday, a traffic death in the Beaumont area was attributed to the storm. In southwestern Louisiana, police reported that a tornado at Hackberry damaged roofs and destroyed a mobile home.
