File photo. iStock/Thinkstock(HOUSTON) — High water rescues are underway for parts of Houston, Texas, Monday morning.



Several homes have been reported to be flooded and so far there have been no injuries reported, Harris County spokesperson Rosie Torres told ABC News.



Torres said a lot of the flooding is due to several creeks and bayous that are spilling over their banks.



Since Sunday evening there has been 7-10 inches of rain that has fallen in the area, said Torres. Adding that this is considered a very dangerous flash flood event for the area.
