HOUSTON—The southeast side of Houston was also hit hard overnight and some drivers along the Gulf Freeway had to abandon their cars. Drivers said the water rose so fast at some intersections and underpasses that they had no time to get to higher ground.

“It was very scary because the water got inside and we couldn’t open the doors,” said one motorist. “So finally we opened the other door, my sister-in-law and I, and that’s it.”
