Flash flooding from torrential overnight rains wreaked havoc with Houston-area commuters Monday, closing some highways and leaving drivers stranded for hours. No serious injuries were reported.
The National Weather Service blamed a slow-moving low pressure system for dumping the heaviest rain in Harris County—between 9-10 ½ inches—and primarily southeast of downtown Houston in the area around the city’s Hobby Airport.
And that low pressure system isn’t likely to go anywhere soon, according to 11 News Meteorologist Dr. Neil Frank.
