A disaster is unfolding in Houston, with widespread flooding spreading across the city and other regions in Texas. In Houston, most schools and business were shut down and residents were urged to stay in their homes. Motorists were left stranded by the torrential downpours and more than 1,000 homes flooded just in Harris County alone. From southeast Texas to northwest of Houston, 10 to 20 inches of rain has been recorded, just as of 6:30 a.m. Central, Weather.com reported. Jim Cantore of the Weather Channel called the situation “mind boggling.”
These are videos from people in the region.
