KINGWOOD, Texas — The rain has ended but high-water concerns continue in many parts of the Houston area.
Lake Conroe in Montgomery County is still closed due to the high water level where water is slowly being released from the dam.
The San Jacinto River Authority reports the lake is currently two feet above its optimal level.
The lake was closed Saturday but is expected to re-open on Monday.
Boats can be damaged by water-covered docks and people can be hurt by unseen debris when the water is at elevated levels.
Boat owners were out to see the conditions of their crafts Sunday afternoon.
"This is the first time they've closed it this year,” said Dryft Cycle Boats owner Jennifer Tweeton. “But as you can imagine, Harvey was a lot worse and they closed it for a couple of weeks.”
A new report of flooding came from a nearby resident who lives south of the San Jacinto River in Conroe.
His family evacuated during Friday’s storm and grabbed what they could.
They could only see their house from the river’s bridge on Sunday.
The river authority says flooding reports related to the San Jacinto River have been few following this weekend’s storms.
