There have already been numerous high-water rescues, with some being from the rooftops of flooded homes. Officials continue to echo urgent instructions for residents that live in low-lying areas, asking for them to evacuate and warning the worst has yet to come.

Over the past several weeks, extremely heavy rains across Texas and parts of Louisiana have begun filling reservoirs and saturating the ground. This week we’ve seen floodwaters partially submerge vehicles and raise in roads and streets across Southeastern Texas. Just north of Houston is where high waters reached the rooftops of some homes.

More Flooding

Per the Associated Press, more than 11 inches (28 centimeters) of rain fell during a 24 hour period that ended Friday morning in the northern Houston suburb of Spring, according to the National Weather Service, which has issued a flood warning until Tuesday for the region.
