HOUSTON (Covering Katy News) The Harris County Flood Control District is warning that “residents should prepare for possible heavy rainfall and potential flash flooding over the next few days as a weather system moves onshore over the upper Texas coast.”
The average rainfall is expected to be 2-4 inches scattered throughout the county with isolated higher amounts especially east of I-45 and south of I-10 according to
a statement from the flood control district. Showers and thunderstorms with locally heavy rainfall are expected Sunday night into Monday and a Flash Flood Watch has been issued for Harris County through Monday afternoon.
The Harris County Flood Control District with the Harris County Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management and the National Weather Service are monitoring the weather and rainfall situation.
“At this time the expected amounts of rainfall will likely cause street flooding, but bayou and creek flooding potential is low due to fairly dry grounds,” the statement said.
