Heavy rain leaves parts of Southeast Texas dealing with high water

Most of the flooding Sunday happened in Montgomery County and parts of Harris County. High water was still on the roads Monday morning.

HOUSTON — Rain and storms moved through the Houston area Sunday, leading to high water in some parts of Harris and Montgomery counties. 

On Monday morning, we were seeing some pretty significant problems in northwest Harris County from the rain. KHOU 11’s Ugochi Iloka was reporting for KHOU 11 Morning News from along Peek Road near Katy Hockley and West Road, where she noticed a car stuck in the water.

That didn't stop some drivers from still trying to get through, even though the road was technically closed as of 5:30 a.m.

This is all from the 4-plus inches of rain that fell across the area over the weekend. Drivers were seen running into flooded roads in northwest Harris County and parts of Montgomery County.

Authorities stress you should not try to drive through flooded roads.

Creeks and bayous were already running high from last week’s storms and weekend rain. Some of those creeks were overflowing.

Sunday evening flooding

On Sunday night, just off Cypresswood Drive near Jones Road, some minor flooding was seen next to a skate park. And earlier on Sunday, in Montgomery County, dashcam video showed a post office vehicle stuck in high water.

In The Woodlands, cars were brought to a crawl on Research Forest Drive. A KHOU 11 viewer sent a video of overflowing sewage bubbling out of a manhole in the ground.

The heavy rain left its mark and more is in the forecast. You can check the extended forecast for Houston here.
