Default Storms over Houston!

Phone has been chirping since 5am with warnings. Pattison has received 16" of rain and Houston is flooding on the roadways. Liberty is under a tornado warning. It has rained here on the Prairie all night and is storming right now. Gonna be a crazy day.

Thunder and lightening every 15 seconds for the whole night - at least it felt that way.

I'm sure flights will be messed up today. Guess I'll spend the morning sitting at IAH.

A buddy of mine is a volunteer firefighter with Klein and said he needs a boat to come pick him up at home to help with the high water rescues. This is the craziest stuff I've ever seen.

i was up at 5:30am instead of my normal 6:00am..we already had gotten some rain.and it looks like we're in for a whole lot more.and the thing of it,is,i just planted my garden 3 days ago.so im hoping that it don't get flooded..i guess it's a good thing that we have no where to go untill friday..
Happy Monday, East Texas! We're underway with a heavy rainfall event that could lead to some potential flash flooding across the area. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for most of the region through Tuesday morning. 1"-3" inches of rainfall have already occurred across portions of the area, with an additional 2"-4" inches likely through Thursday morning.

Periods of showers and storms, especially the first half of your Monday, with some breaks later this afternoon. Highs climb into the lower 70s.

Another round of showers and storms will arrive later tonight. Overnight lows drop into the 60s.

More waves of showers and storms are possible for your Tuesday, with highs warming into the lower to middle 70s.

Scattered showers and storms are possible again on Wednesday, especially during the afternoon and evening with a cold front that will approach the area. Some of these storms could be strong to severe. Rain chances finally begin to dry up by the time we move towards Thursday afternoon behind the front Highs will remain in the upper 70s.

The weekend is looking dry with mainly sunshine. Highs in the upper 70s to near 80.

My area usually loses power if the humidity increases. I'm very surprised that with all the lightening through the night we still have power.

Neighbor left his car on the street - water level was 2' and entered his vehicle. Now it won't start.

Son just called me from Briarpark/Richmond area in Houston. Cars flooded out & pretty well shut down. He drives a tall 4X4 and said water was getting close to the bottom of the doors so he turned around & went back home.

I'm not sure how much we got over night at work. But trying to leave there was some serious water fording that had to be done. That's over off of federal. Stay home if y'all are able to this morning!

I headed to work this morning, got half way there and decided it was best to turn around. Feeders were flooded and thank God I drive a truck. All the power was out in Spring and the interstate was black, it was eerie looking. THen on way home I45 just south of Conroe was almost completely under water.

No, it's flooding. Water in the back has no place to drain because the road is flooded covering the drainage. Water rises and comes in the back door when that happens.

People driving with flashers on, what's your opinion?

I don't think that's the intended purpose of hazard flashers, but I could be wrong. It's not illegal to drive with your hazard lights on in Texas (for weather), but other states it is.
