For those who do not plan on driving, you can stay up-to-date with alerts from Houston Metro here. The department said any decisions about light rail and bus service will depend on the amount of flooding in the city. Monica Russo with the Metro press office noted that light rail service must be suspended if flood water is four inches above the rail line.

For those escaping the city early, Metro's Park & Ride service opened ahead of normal schedule at noon.

And, for those looking for a quick place to stash furniture, bicycles, books or any belongs, 41 U-Haul storage facilities across Texas are offering 30 days of free storage for those dealing with Hurricane Harvey. Cities include Houston, Corpus Christi, League City and others along the Gulf Coast.
