    Texas: Lone worker unclogs flooded highway

    Not all heroes wear capes. In fact, some of them wear hard hats and neon vests.

    And here is one-- trudging through knee deep water to unclog a drain on a major road in Houston.

    Heavy rain hit the area Wednesday night -- causing street flooding all over the city.

    The clog culprit?

    Landscaping clipping and pieces of a shredded tire! Once the clog was cleared-- it wasn't long before traffic started moving again.

    As for the identity of Houston's Sewer Hero-- that remains a mystery.
