HOUSTON, TX – When it rains, it pours. And when it pours in our area for a couple of days straight, “Houston” we have a problem!

Three days in a row of soaking rain has left the bayou city water-logged. 3 to 4.5 inches across the northern and western parts of Harris County. The sudden rise of the San Jacinto River has put a damper on residents of Humble on alert for flooding.

Just down the road in Atascocita, lightning struck the Sunrise Apartment Complex. The resulting fire sent over 50 residents to a nearby church. That makes the following predicaments seem like mere inconvenience for drivers near Greenhouse Road and Saums Road stuck in high water. While drivers were in deep, business’s were working hard to keep their money from going down the drain. But for others, cash is flowing. Tow truck drivers are riding the wave getting to those stuck in the water.

So save your car and save your time. Cause when it comes to being stuck up a creek without a paddle, ain’t nobody time for that!
