The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Warning until 1:30 for Polk, San Jacinto, Montgomery, and Liberty counties.  Anywhere from 1-5 inches of rain has fallen in the warned area and more heavy downfalls could happen in the next couple of hours.

Texas Department of Transportation has reported some water on FM 1988 and FM 62 in Polk County, but no road closures at this time.   Some water has been reported on Highway 59 in Shepherd, but no detours have been set.

A Flash Flood watch continues for East Texas until tonight.



Heavy rains continue across the East Texas area, in fact we will be under a Flash Flood Watch for most of the day and night.

A Tornado Warning has been issued for the City of Houston as a funnel cloud has been sighted near the Sugarland area.

There have also been reports of road closures and detours on Highway 59 in Southern Polk and San Jacinto counties.


The National Weather Service has allowed the tornado warning that was issued earlier for portions of Polk and Trinity counties to expire.

As of 7am, there are no active warnings for Deep East Texas, however a number of storms continue to intensify across the region.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for East Texas through tonight with heavy rains and severe storms possible.
