As severe storms moved through Southeast Texas again late Monday into early Tuesday morning, high water and flooding made many of the city’s roads impassable, prompting officials to urge residents to stay home.
Most of Houston’s major roadways are flooded or filled with stalled vehicles, forcing the shutdown of highways and streets, including the East Sam Houston tollway in both directions and Interstate 45 North in both directions.
A flash flood warning was in effect until 6 a.m. Central for Fort Bend and Harris counties. Harris County includes the city of Houston.
Harris County Flood District advised residents waking up for work and school Tuesday morning to not leave their homes.
