Catastrophic Flooding Paralyzed Houston Texas early Sunday Morning

“Catastrophic” flooding paralyzed Houston and other deluged towns in southeastern Texas early Sunday as Tropical Storm Harvey pummeled and drenched residents and first responders.

More than 1,000 people had been rescued overnight due to record flooding in the sprawling Houston area, according to meteorologist Jeff Lindner with Harris County’s Flood Control District.
“Stay put,” the National Weather Service advised.
One of two confirmed fatalities in the ferocious storm happened in Houston when a woman drove her vehicle into high water, city police said. Police said they believe the car became inoperable — or the water was too high to pass through. The victim got out of her vehicle, was overtaken by water and drowned.
