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.
