As Central Texas experienced a flash food warning amid a thunderstorm in the area, at least an inch of rain accumulated inside the Texas Capitol on Sunday.

Sloan Byerly, chief of staff for State Rep. Travis Clardy, posted a video of water coming in from the ceiling, flooding the E2.200 and E2.300 hallways.

KVUE reports the flooding was caused by a water drain getting clogged, backing up water into the capitol extension.

Gov. Greg Abbott responded "It's all hands on deck," to address the situation.

The storm also brought flooding to the University of Texas' Gregory Gym.

The flash flood warning ended Sunday evening as Monday is forecast for partly sunny skies and a 30% of rain.
