Historic Flooding in SE Texas

Major flooding, some say historic, has occurred in SE TX around the Houston area over the past few days with 20″ of rain accumulated over a short period of time.  Already early damage reports total the estimated damages at over $5 billion in Harris County (Houston area) and the rain continues to fall; rain is expected through Thursday with 1-3 more inches predicted. Over 3,000 square miles were flooded. There have been over 1,800 high water rescues and a few fatalities. Forty-five roads are closed and many others are almost impassable. There are 14 shelters currently open in 4 counties.  All of this is in addition to severe flooding in E TX earlier where 6,000 people have registered for assistance. This is the wettest April ever in the area. Several PCA members have flooded homes. We will be meeting with local and presbytery PCA leadership at Spring Cypress PCA – Houston Metro, to assess how we might respond.
