Surprised no one has posted on this yet. A bunch of roads around Richmond/Rosenberg have been closed due to flooding. Foster HS campus is closed due to FM 723 being impassable and closed.

Below is a link to the Fort Bend County Office of Emergency website and subsequent link to the updated road closures list:

This is from the Missouri City police department.

Staff is closely monitoring area waterways and roadways and have identified several areas of concern. As a result the following roads have been closed to through traffic:

* Plum Brook Lane in Quail Valley; residents who reside on the street will be allowed entry.

And as always if you see water, turn around, do not assume you can drive through it.

We are definitely at record levels as to the river, but I wouldn't say there's been no media coverage. However, I too was surprised there's not much on this forum about it. Here's a useful link if you don't already have it:

National Weather Service Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service

Hopefully it reaches its peak tonight and we're on the better side of this. It has already exceeded expectations (54.1' vs 53.5'). If it can get this high, though, it can get higher, which is scary.

We drove around a bit tonight, and the river is so high. I couldn't believe it. Sugar Land Memorial Park is completely flooded. In one place, water is on University Blvd. near the park.

What worries me is the storms predicted for later this week. I hope we don't get much more rain.

Fulshear Creek super high.... Looks like it's cresting tonight in Richmond. Hopefully more rain projected later this week doesnt make things worse.

I think it's supposed to crest today? 54.54' now and climbing only slightly. I expect it to peak shortly, stick there & start heading downward in a day or so, but slowly. In other words it will hang well above 50' for quite a while. Could be sensitive to more rainfall upstream for several weeks too.

If you look at the "tabular data" in the link above it looks like it's trying to crest now. Rate of increase decreasing and all, which is good. This really gives you an idea of the severity of the rainfall north of us last week and how long it takes to manifest downstream. Unbelievable.
