Neches River flowing backward from Ike storm surge

From comments on The Oil Drum

What is really interesting to me is that the Neches River currently has a flow of -32000 cubic feet a second – that is, the water is now flowing the wrong direction in that amount.
Somewhere, this mass of water will collide with the normal downriver flow – and the area where it does will suffer from severe flooding, likely miles from the coast.
