The river is dropping at 1489 in Simonton. It crested sometime in the last 24 hours and has dropped 4-6" since then. I was hear at 2:30 yesterday afternoon and it was still rising but now is falling pretty fast.
House and businesses along 359 didn't look good this morning.

The river has officially crested and is falling. Thanks be to God. It spares all of the leveed communities in Fort Bend including mine. Looking at those pics is crazy. My parents live about 2 miles behind the Swinging Door. So far they are fine, the water only made it up to their door.

That's good to hear about your folks, I was curious how that area was holding up.
