BRAZORIA COUNTY, TX (KTRK) --Spotty to severe showers were expected in the forecast in southeast Texas, but some residents in Brazoria County were caught by surprise.
A deluge of floodwaters swept across CR 803, near the town of Sweeny, where homeowners were met with rising water on roads. Some were less lucky, with water standing in their homes.

A viewer named Roy told Eyewitness News his home took on water, and sadly, he has no insurance. Several homes in his area had some water inside and at least one had a tree fall on the roof.
Meantime, a sinkhole opened up on Lazy Oaks Ranch St. Sunday morning. Precinct 1 road crews set up a temporary bridge so that neighbors could leave their homes. Eyewitness News reporter Lauren Lea reported big chunks of the street were still collapsing Sunday evening. Portions of the street underneath the temporary bridge fell into the swollen ditch below and the county sent out a crew to make sure the bridge would hold. The drainage ditch feeds into the San Bernard River. Neighbor Bob Bailey said the river rose two feet after six inches of rain fell in the area. Bailey was the first to see the sinkhole at 7 a.m. Sunday.
Beyond Brazoria County, this weekend's storms created pretty dramatic scenes across southeast Texas.
Stephanie Easley, meantime, says the Newport neighborhood in Crosby is now dealing with hail damage and downed trees.
Viewer Ramona Espinoza says yesterday's storms in Pearland produced high winds and plenty of pelting rain.
