What 2 Know as Imelda makes way through SE Texas


Good evening from Click2Houston.com. It's Tuesday, Sept. 17.

Imelda made landfall Tuesday afternoon as a Tropical Storm near Freeport. Later Tuesday, the system was downgraded to a Tropical Depression. Take a look at our coverage below.


Imelda continues to produce heavy rain throughout SE Texas. Initially moving north at 7 mph, the center of the storm has slowed and as a result, is expected to create dangerous flooding conditions in our region. For now, 7 to 10 inches of rain widespread is still expected BUT higher amounts are very likely in isolated areas where some computer models indicate 10 to 15 inches through Thursday. Those higher amounts are most likely along the coast. Check Frank's full forecast for more.
