SanJac's West Fork Seeing Moderate Flooding


A flood warning is still in effect for the West Fork of San Jacinto River after rainfall from the past 24 hours.

The Harris County Flood Control District on Thursday urged residents "to avoid the area as the water will take time to drain."

Portions of Harris County received up to five inches of rain Wednesday night that caused some high-water locations.

The HCFCD said conditions would peak Thursday evening and the area will remain flooded through Friday afternoon. The main threat remains street flooding.

The Harris County Flood Control District's Flood Watch team will continue to check the gauges and water levels in San Jacinto and other high-water areas.

Residents are being asked to remain aware of conditions near their workplaces, schools and homes. The Flood Control District urges all residents to monitor rainfall and bayou water levels on its Harris County Regional Flood Warning System website, harriscountyfws.org.
