HOUSTON -

The rain Thursday was non-stop for hours and widespread. There really wasn't an area that was spared by this line of storms.

To the north, the high water was more than just an inconvenience. At least one driver needed help getting out. On the south side of town, more drivers going through flooded streets.  The high water on these roads wasn't slowing drivers down.

On the east side, big trucks made big waves on the freeways. And to the west, bayous and waterways filled up fast and more drivers had to pass through high water.

The weather also brought power outages to some areas and put a damper on some folks' Halloween plans. It will be a muddy night for the trick-or-treaters.

The flooding and severe weather threat moved out with the front in the evening.  All of the rain began moving out from west to east staring at 6pm.
