Heavy Rainfall and Flash Flooding Threat Continuing Through Saturday

Heavy Rainfall and Flash Flooding Threat Continuing Through Saturday

Overnight heavy and persistent rain occurred over Northeast Harris County resulting in flash flooding in parts of Kingwood and neighboring communities. Additionally, heavy rains of 4-6 inches occurred from Missouri City to La Porte and Deer Park. Rainfall exceeded projected averages resulting in amounts of 7-9 inches, which caused high water and street flooding. Bayou and creek levels remain high, but most - including Keegans Bayou, Brays Bayou, Armand Bayou, and Clear Creek – have crested and are receding from last night’s rainfall. Only one remains out of banks – the San Jacinto River below Lake Houston at US 90 and Rio Villa Drive.
