...THE FLASH FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 830 PM CST FOR
HARRIS...NORTHWESTERN GALVESTON...WEST CENTRAL CHAMBERS AND NORTH
CENTRAL BRAZORIA COUNTIES...

At 733 PM CST, automated rain gauges indicated that heavy rain had
fallen over the area. Up to four inches of rain has already fallen.
Flash flooding is already occurring. Thunderstorms are continuing to
exit the warning area and additional flash flooding is not expected,
but high water is being reported in many locations via Houston
TranStar including Interstate 10 at Jensen and Interstate 45 at
North Main. Residents are urged to check road conditions before
departing as low-lying areas and underpasses will take longer for
water to drain.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Pasadena, Pearland, League City, Baytown, Friendswood, La Porte, Deer
Park, South Houston, Seabrook, Galena Park, Jacinto City, Webster,
Beach City, Kemah, Clear Lake, Greater Fifth Ward, Fourth Ward,
Second Ward, Greater Eastwood and Greater Hobby Area.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

A Flash Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring.
If you are in the warned area move to higher ground immediately.
Residents living along streams and creeks should take immediate
precautions to protect life and property.
