Specifically, Imelda, which made landfall in Freeport as a Tropical Storm yesterday, is hitting the coastal counties. Kent Prochazka with the National weather Service in League City told KTRH that will continue to be the case this morning.

"The shift is probably going to occur this afternoon, once we get some daytime heating going," Prochazka said.

In Galveston County, Communications Director Zach Davidson told KTRH they have gotten their share and then some.

"We are looking at four to five inches so far in the majority of the county, and we are expecting rain throughout the day," Davidson stated.

He says there have been no high water rescues as of yet, and no major road flooding. Right now it's the coast that's getting the heavy rain, but David Roth with the Weather Prediction Center we will all feel this at some point this afternoon.

"The band will rotate in probably this afternoon," Roth said.

Power outages and flight delays have not been an issue as of yet, but that could change. Here is a list of high water locations.
