HOUSTON, TX -  Brace yourself because southeast Texas is  gonna have another really wet week.

Corpus Christi already got slammed as heavy rain moved through, quickly caused flooding, and trapped many drivers inside their cars. Emergency crews made several water rescues.

All sights we`re way too familiar with in Houston.

According to the Harris County Flood Control District, don`t expect a repeat of the Tax Day flood last month, or the Memorial Day flooding last year. But, the potential for more high water is huge.

Jose Ruvira, FEMA Mitigation Specialist says, “Mold and mildew is one of the biggest issues around here.”

FEMA reps will be at the following locations through Tuesday between 7:00am and 5:30pm:

  • Home Depot, 999 N. Loop West in Houston.
  • Lowes, 5002 Garth Rd., in Baytown.

FEMA has info about their National Flood Insurance Program.  Ruvira says, “When you get flood insurance, you can protect the contents and the structure of your house.”

FEMA`s also advising on rebuilding and elevating properties in the aftermath of storm damage.

If you need to speak with a flood insurance specialist, contact FEMA at 800-621-3362 weekdays between 8:00am and 6:00pm. Select option number two.

We can`t catch a break when it comes to wacky weather. Makes you wanna ask, “What`s next?”

Heat is next! In fact, rising temperatures sparked NASA scientists to declare a climate emergency.  We earthlings just went through the warmest April on record, keeping us on track to have the hottest year, yet.

Remember, Mother Nature`s calling the shots, weather we like it or not!!
