Texas flooding worse than Harvey

First responders were overwhelmed by 911 calls for high water rescues Thursday as Tropical Depression Imelda drenched East Texas with unrelenting rain measured in feet.

Authorities in Jefferson County, east of Houston, said some areas have seen more than 40 inches of rain in the last three days.

"The Flash Flood Emergency has been continued and expanded," the National Weather Service office in Houston said. "This is an incredibly dangerous, life-threatening situation."

George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston ordered a full ground stop, and Mayor Sylvester Turner announced that "high water assets" were deployed in parts of the city.
