River Flood Conditions/Flood Warning In Effect

Flood Warnings remain in effect across the Houston area...primarily because of ongoing river flooding. We were trying to get up to Texas Children's this morning (on Highway 90). It was deadlocked as we got in closer to the loop. So we took another route. I have a feeling Buffalo Bayou was causing some flooding, but it might have been street flooding. Anyway, we found another way to get there. We did cross Buffalo Bayou and it was high and running fast. Please go to this link for more information on river flooding.


One of our blog followers commented on CyFair School District. They were also closed today. Overnight there was very heavy rain over the Cypress Creek and White Oak Bayou Water Sheds. Piney Point Village and Highland Village were particularly hard hit.

Remember the rule of thumb to "Turn Around, Don't Drown" when encountering flooded roadways.

More rain is possible later tonight into early Wednesday with leftover boundaries and plenty of moisture. Will note that models are drying us out, but they didn't do a great job of catching what developed overnight. Will say there was an indication of more rain--just not 8 to 9 inches in a few hours.
