Bunch of rain in the heights, white oak bayou was close to going over its banks, but it's calmed down a bit now. Was supposed to pick up the dog from the Ken el this morning and head to Dallas but they didn't have anyone there until like 1. There was a bunch of flooding in the tanglewood area, on fountain view the water would have been over my hood from where the water line was.

We got 4.5 inches. Minor street flooding that subsided quickly. North end of galveston county.

Wife is watching the news and there's black people whose apartments flooded standing on an overpass. It's our own mini katrina. Obama doesn't care about black people!

Ft. Bend County here. It rained. Damp outside now. Worked from home. Newscasters all seem to be in histrionics.

Very quiet at work in Clear Lake. Downtown and up north got hit the worst. Hopefully it flushed some trash out of the gunspoint area but that would probably just send it my way. Schools closed at noon so a lot of people left.

Watching that now it's hilarious. Six guys sunk a john boat earlier at that apartment complex. Lol

I'm over in far southeast Texas and all day long the Houston radio said everything was flooded and everything was shut down. We're getting it pretty bad here but the flooding isn't area wide. With those rains a few weeks ago whole towns flooded north of here.....

Been in the Houston area since 1971. This is one of the worst flooding events we've seen. I'm north of town in Spring and we had a tornado pass through around midnight. Lots of tree damage but no home damage for us thankfully.

The Greenspoint area is under water with lots of eerie "Katrina" type footage. Ands lots of people helping others in need as well. Most businesses are shut down.

My Cousin and her family live there. She was surprised they canceled school.

"Wow I never would of thought our kids would get a day out of school due to the weather and coastal flooding!!"

It was pretty bad this morning in the Grangerland area (in between Conroe and New Caney). Now it isn't bad but my field is under a couple feet of water.

Local news is trying so hard to keep it going with 24hr coverage.
Link Posted: 4/18/2016 4:16:07 PM EDT
I'm in Katy.

Street flooding, and lots of flooded/stalled cars. Our neighborhood still has about a foot of water in the streets.

I was out in the Land Rover this morning, and in lots of areas if you weren't in something tall like a Rover/Jeep/F250 you could have been screwed quite easily.

I have been in this area for 20ish years, and I don't ever recall seeing inundated vehicles in our immediate area.

In short, it was pretty sporty in the early morning, but it's not too bad now. I haven't talked to anyone who has water in their house in our area.

Coastal flooding? She ain't in Houston then. Guess she didn't see all the street flooding and road closures or the underpasses 12' under.

We have an office in the area and most people have not come in just to avoid a lot of the roadways and to deal with their own houses.

Doesn't every underpass there have a sign saying do not enter if flooded or something along those lines?

It's similar to Memorial Day floods last year.

They are still in for 3-4 days of rain if the forecast hold up.

That spot floods that deep every time it rains really hard. And every damned time, at least one dumb ass drives right into it.

I stay in the Katy area during the work week, apparently several homes around Barker Cypress have flooded, but my little rental hasn't. Area also had decent sized hail.

I had a TON of work to do today and my phone blew up at 2am with various group messages about all installs being cancelled and people not being able to get to work.

At about 7am our email server went down.

My service tech didn't even call, he just sent a pic of his front yard and an open beer.

And now it's pouring ass at my actual house about 3.5 hours west of Two-ston.

I'll be lucky to get 2 days of work done if the current weather forecasts hold up..... 90% chances of rain over Cypress for the next 4 days....

I headed out this morning in the 1986 Blazer before they cancelled my jury duty officially.

There's going to be a shit-ton of flood vehicles on the market soon. People were dunking their cars in stuff I wouldn't even think of going through in the Blazer for anything short of a Zombie apocalypse.

Meyerland got hit badly last year. They got smacked again today. But the flooding today is far more widespread. The Waller area northwest of Houston was hit hard today as well as Conroe and Porter areas.

Sorry to hear. We got lucky, most of it was north of our area. Hopefully you can get insurance to help with the repairs.

Oh FFS.

Just a complete absence of survival instinct. That's how good we have it in America: We don't even know when our lives are in imminent danger.

And fuck that little faggot "reporter" and his on scene exclusive interview.
