What is the danger?
Heavy Rainfall Beginning Today Will Continue Through Thursday Afternoon:

The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for nearly all of Southeast Texas beginning at 6:00 p.m. this evening through 3:00 p.m. Thursday afternoon.

A strong system of thunderstorms will bring heavy rainfall across Harris County and the surrounding region beginning today and continuing through Thursday. Widespread rainfall totals of 1 to 3 inches, with isolated areas of 4+ inches, are likely. Street flooding is likely in urban and low-lying areas.

There is a low probability some of the stronger storms could bring high winds, hail, or tornadoes.

Residents should closely monitor local forecasts for updates over the next 24 hours.

What you should do:

If possible, stay home and off the roadways. If you must go out, never drive into high water, and use extreme caution at underpasses and low-lying areas where water accumulates. Motorists should be extra cautious at night when high water can be difficult to see.

Always remember to Turn Around, Don’t Drown! DO NOT DRIVE through high water and NEVER DRIVE AROUND BARRICADES!

Just two feet of water can sweep your vehicle away.
