More flooding in South Texas, and it’s not pretty

It’s been raining for several days straight in South Texas, and it’s no surprise that there are areas where major flooding is happening.

Corpus Christi, which was hit hard by Hurricane Harvey, got 10 inches of rain in two days. And, there’s more rain coming.

Other areas in South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley are experiencing flooding: Edcough, Harlingen, La Feria, La Villa, Mercedes, Progreso, Rio Hondo, San Benito, Santa Rosa and Weslaco.

Police in Weslaco are urging people to stay off the roads.

Houston’s local ABC News reports that “tropical moisture from the Gulf will bring more scattered downpours to the Houston area today. Meteorologist Travis Herzog says heavy, slow-moving storms have already prompted numerous flood advisories west and northwest of Houston.”

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 7PM for parts of southeast Texas.
