Travel alert for Texas

A severe weather event hit southeastern Texas in mid-May with large hail, gusty winds and flooding downpours – this next round of storms coming immediately following multiple days of severe thunderstorms and heavy rainfall.

Houston was hit hard with as much as ten inches of rain falling in and around the city. 

Houston Intercontinental Airport issued a ground stop as a result of the severe storms, causing all inbound flights to Houston to be held at their origins. As of this morning, all of the Houston Independent School District and offices are closed due to flooding.
