Rainfall from a slow-moving storm system has been impacting Harris County since early this morning. Some of this rainfall has been very intense with some areas seeing more than three inches of rain in an hour. Rain is expected to continue through today and through most of the weekend.
The primary threat to residents will be flooding of roadways, intersections, and some low-lying areas. Driving in these conditions can be extremely hazardous. Slow down, allow extra space between you and the car in front of you, and most of all, NEVER drive into flooded roadways. Remember: Turn Around Don’t Drown!
