Storms cause more minor flooding in parts of Southeast Texas

HOUSTON - by KHOU 11 News and www.khou.com

A Flash Flood Watch continues for the Houston area after heavy rains caused more street flooding overnight.

Residents in southwest Houston were especially hit hard where already-filled drainage ditches spilled into the roadways.

Street flooding was reported in the City of Bellaire and in Houston's Gulfton neighborhood. Yet again, cars on Fondren near Highway 59 had to be towed out after stalling in high water.

Houston TranStar reported high-water conditions all around town, including 290 at FM 529.

Near downtown, drivers had trouble at the I-45 N HOV at Travis, and flooding was also reported behind the University of Houston-Downtown where several vehicles, including a police car, stalled out.

The storms brought not only heavy rains but also quite a thunder and lightning show.

One viewer in Columbus said she woke up to what sounded like bombs before 3 a.m.

The lightning moved into Houston shortly before 4 a.m. A house fire was reported west of Rice University, although it wasn't confirmed that it was weather related.

One resident in the Cottage Grove community west of The Heights reported that water was coming into some garages at a townhome complex.

Kim Jackson with the Harris County Flood Control District says the county has received 6 to 8 inches of rain across the northern and western parts over the past 48 hours, with 1 to 2.5 inches in less than an hour Wednesday morning.

County officials are is monitoring swollen bayous and creeks, along with rainfall levels. They say bayous and creeks are responding as expected:

-- South Mayde Creek in west Harris County is out of banks near Greenhouse Road and Interstate 10.
-- Little Cypress Creek in northwest Harris County is overbanks on the upper end at Becker Road, with street flooding in Ranch Country subdivision.
-- Cypress Creek in northwest Harris County is nearing bankfull near I-45 and at other points.
-- Willow Creek water levels are high, but within banks.
