A strong storm pounded through Houston with little warning today, leaving travelers stranded in high water in plenty of places.
Twitter came alive with weather pictures, including these....
From the Chron's Eric Berger: "Photo of hail from Willowbend, in west Houston, this evening. Wow!"
The worst seems over, and the water eventually will drain, but be careful out there. And send your pics to our Houston Press Flickr group.
