We had some flooding but Klein I believe was the the lone hold out of the districts in the city. Everyone else cancelled school. Tomball is too but they're so far north.


I can only imagine DJBoutIt and all you fellow Meyerland, Brasewood, Westbury living folks are handling your cars being flooded out. I have a friend in Meyerland and she's trapped in her complex so St. Luke's was minus one great nurse today despite her car being on the second level. I have one friend who were stuck at Toyota Center last night with her boyfriend and parents. That could have been worst if they lost again. I'd want to float away from them quickly if so

The pictures I've seen look like Tropical Storm Allison all over again. Ike didn't even look like this.


Newcomers to Houston, a non-Tropical Storm/Hurricane wipes you out in these neighborhoods. That's something to think about.

Medical center was fine, most roads were dry. I Rode my bicycle from the Medical center, through Hermann Park and up Midtown to Downtown and most roads were dry with no flooding. The bayou was near road-level, though.

This is a silly line of thinking. While not a tropical storm or hurricane the rainfall in such a short amount of time exceeded that of most of our TS

Im at I-10 and Bunker Hill just south of I-10. That area flooded worse than I believe it ever has. Lots of flooded out cars all along the feeder, and several houses I know were flooded that I do not believe ever flooded in the past.

I got much closer than I would have preferred.

I agree but then you have Channels 11 and 13 interviewing people going "I've lived her 20 years and this is the most flooding we've ever got"

Allison was a beast but people are saying this was more flooding and a lot of pictures do look Allison twin like

Default Taft and Allen Parkway

I live down the street from Taft and Allen Parkway, this is what I saw this morning...

That is Buffalo Bayou overflowing the banks... I wonder how all the landscaping, lighting and sidewalks they just installed will fare after today?!

I live close to Luckys Pub in the Heights...which is a low spot in the area. I had no flooding but many roads around me were flooding...like I-10 @ Houston ave & I-45 at Main and any underpass in the area.
