As storms have moved through the Greater Houston area, the HCFCD is requesting residents stay vigilant of potential flooding conditions and upstream runoff as another round of rain throughout the day is expected to keep water levels rising.
According to the release, the biggest areas of concern are:
- Upper Spring Creek to upstream of Hwy. 249
- Upper Cypress Creek upstream of Sharp Road
- Upper Little Cypress Creek along Becker Road
What they’re saying
"All other creeks and bayous are within their banks, but they may experience rising water levels throughout the day as rainfall continues to affect the area,” the release reads. “The Flood Operations Team is continuing to monitor rainfall trends, assessing the Flood Control District’s network of gauges that measures rainfall amounts and water levels in bayous and creeks.”
Residents can monitor water levels near their area with the Harris County Flood Warning System. Residents can also monitor the levels and dam releases for Lake Houston and Lake Conroe at their respective sites.
