Caution still advised around Bellaire despite slowing rain


The City of Bellaire is still advising caution for residents despite slowing rain from Tropical Depression Imelda.

“Area bayous, including Brays Bayou, are full and street drainage will be slow,” a city alert stated. “The threat of street flooding still exists for our community so be safe.”

According to the Harris County Flood Warning System, Brays Bayou received 7.96 inches of rain over the last 24 hours at Rice Avenue, 5.96 inches at Stella Link Road and 4.92 at South Main Street. No flooding has been reported at the Rice Avenue channel, while the Stella Link channel status remains undefined and flooding is possible at the South Main Street channel.

Cheryl Bright, Bellaire’s director of communications, said that some vehicles were stranded in the city’s streets, many of which are still impassable, and stranded motorists have been aided by the city.

Solid waste and recycling collection services in Bellaire have been postponed today and will resume tomorrow, with city workers to attempt to pick up any solid waste that was left over from today.
