Drivers hassle with high water at Beltway 8 and Sycamore in Pasadena

PASADENA, TexasHigh water on the roadway near the intersection of Beltway 8 and Sycamore in Pasadena gave drivers a rough go Thursday night.

Water as deep as 4 feet pushed its way onto the feeder road and into people's yards.

“It’s definitely heavy water and the traffic has been pretty heavy for hours. People have just been trying to avoid the water and avoid hydroplaning into other cars”, says Anthony Jones.

Gary, a mechanic who lives in this area inside the Golden Acres subdivision off of Sycamore, says the deep water, fueled by heavy rain,caused the roads to get worse with each passing hour.

“I’ve seen it where 18-wheelers couldn’t even make it through.  It’s deep … this is about the deepest water I’ve seen in the last several years,” Gary says.

By 10 p.m. Thursday, most of that deep water had drained away.
