Homeowners on both the east and west sides are keeping a close eye on the water as it creeps toward homes, and floods out roads.

Creeks in Northwest Harris County continued to rise Thursday night, some rushing over roads, after the day's heavy rains.

Some drivers took their chances on dangerous roads while others turned back around.

Off Decker Prairie Road at Spring Creek, drivers like Tiffany Jackson told abc13 caution goes far.

"We live in Cypress. We're heading out to Magnolia," said Jackson. "So because we're not comfortable or familiar with this road. I rather just turn around and take a different route."

On Becker Road near the Ranch Country subdivision, neighbors opened front doors to flooded streets.

Eleven-year-old Destiny Bolden says she couldn't sleep because of all the rain and thunder.

"I didn't like it. I was scared a little bit," said Bolden. "It was shaking."

Drivers like Lisa Martinez made her way out of the water logged neighborhood, only to find more flooding.

"Let it stop," said Martinez. "We don't need no more."

Off FM 2920 in Tomball at the Treichel Woods Estates, flood waters forced families indoors. Twelve-year-old best friends Braxton McCants and Luis Lopez took out their paddle boat.

"I got up for school, thinking it was all normal," said McCants. "I walked outside and said, 'Whoa, all the water is here.'"

We checked in with several law enforcement agencies. There were no reports of any water rescues.
