Tropical Depression Imelda continues to dump rain in Southeast Texas. The heavy rainfall began yesterday and hasn’t let up yet.
This morning, the National Weather Service noted that “torrential flooding rainfall” would occur over the next few hours.
According to The Weather Channel,
Imelda has dumped prolific rainfall over parts of eastern Texas overnight.
This triggered major flash flooding east and north of Houston.
Roads and homes have been flooded and water rescues have been performed.
Some of the same areas that were hit hard by Harvey in 2017 have experienced major flooding from Imelda.
Heavy rain may continue into tonight and Friday in parts of eastern Texas and western Louisiana
