HARRIS COUNTY (Covering Katy News) – With light to moderate rainfall gradually coming to an end early Friday morning, Harris County’s bayous, creeks, and tributaries are continuing to respond to the runoff from overnight storms but South Mayde Creek at Greenhouse Road remained near the top of its banks.
