It's been a rough few days in Houston, TX to say the least. Storms earlier this week dumped up to 10-plus inches of rain in many areas around town. The result was devastating flooding on the city's roadways, property damage, and numerous deaths.

As the skies have cleared and the sunshine has returned, there has been some good news. With regard to the Texans, TMZ Sports is reporting that NRG Stadium hasn't suffered any damage.

The spokesman for NRG Park said about the flood waters and the stadium:

"We're pretty lucky. No damage on the property at all. We span across 350-acres and our property includes NRG Stadium (home to the NFL's Houston Texans), NRG Center, NRG Arena and NRG Astrodome. Most of the damage was on the freeways surrounding us and, of course, the streets. We had to cancel work yesterday because no one could get around."

It also appears the Texans' practice facilities across the street survived the storm. The team held their first day of OTAs on Wednesday.
