Update: We've added a screencap of road closures from Houston Transtar on the next page. A flood warning was issued this morning for Harris County, an upgrade from a flash flood watch overnight. Houston has received around 2 to 4 inches of rain so far since getting hit by rainfall last night, with another 2 inches or so expected throughout the day.
This is one of those "avoid water covered roads" days. If you live in a flood plain you already know what that means.
According to the National Weather Service, minor flooding of the Addicks Reservoir should level off.
At 8 a.m. this morning flood stage was 108.9 feet with a rise of up to 110 feet expected for South Mayde Creek.
