Houston drying out after getting drenched by flash flooding across city

HOUSTON – Heavy wind and rain proved Monday afternoon to be a bit of a challenge for homeowners and drivers in greater Houston.

As the rain poured down inundating areas near Richmond Ave near Upper Kirby and Wesleyan and left several drivers were stuck.

Meanwhile, drivers in downtown saw heavy rain and slick roads, and those near the Southwest Freeway suffered a downpour that caused some headaches, requiring extra caution while driving.

West to Piney Point Village, one resident on Surrey Oaks Lane found their long pine tree snapped in half like a toothpick!

Despite these conditions, no one was reported to be hurt.

And as usual, KPRC 2 viewers delivered some pictures and videos to document this to Click2Pins.

These were just a few of the pics that stood out. Please feel free to submit your pictures or videos of the Monday storms to click2pins.com.
