During a hurricane, a subway system could come in handy. Do you remember where you were during Hurricane Rita? You might have been stuck in traffic for no less than three to nine hours trying to get from one destination to another.
Does the author understand how high the water table is in Houston? The last place I'd want to be during the storm surge of a hurricane is underground below the water table in a subway tunnel.

She also doesn’t understand how expensive it would be to dig a tunnel through miles of bedrock around Austin.
She’s obviously a Yankee transplant. (and a Muzzie)
OMG. You're not kidding!
There is a tunnel in Baytown I believe that goes under the Houston shipping channel. I don't know if it was open during evacuations. I don't think I'd take that route anyway. ;-)
