Flash flooding catches Houston-area drivers by surprise

HOUSTON – Storms on Saturday caught some Houstonians by surprise.

“The water caught me off guard and I got my family in here and it's terrible,” said Jimmy Arucha.

Arucha's van stalled on Reveille and Park Place Saturday night.

“I thought I could do it, but it just stopped,” said Arucha.

Other drivers helped push his car to the side of the road.

Paul Ladeet drove into the same problem.

“I guess there's a big dip from where the street and the parking lot come in at and I guess it's full of water so my car went head first in then the car shut,” said Ladeet.
