La Porte, Tx. - Stormy weather in Central Texas led to the cancellation of day 1 for the BP MS 150. But as storms made their way into the Houston area, an inconvenience for some turned into danger for others.

At Belfort and 59, some cars were nearly submerged.

The Glen Meadows subdivision in La Porte got hit especially hard, with water rushing up driveways and breaching into people`s homes.

Community streets turned into canals, flooding cars parked in the street.

And with a good chance at rough weather ahead, some front yards are serving as makeshift parking lots, while the community braces for round 2.

April showers bringing may flowers is nice and all, but folks out here would just as well NOT see a repeat of Friday night. Stay safe out there Houston.

If your home was damaged by the storms, remember to fill out a flood survey.
