HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The Harris County Flood Control District is still monitoring high water levels across the city after strong floods caused major street flooding in some areas.

Many cars have been found, stranded and submerged underwater. The High Water Rescue team has made several rescue throughout the night.

Water is above the top of the banks on Little Cypress Creek at Becker Road and South Mayde Creek, at both Greenhouse and Saums roads. Officials said the floods are minor.

The underpass at Jensen at Bennington had over six feet of water just before 12:30 am.

A young man was stranded in his car. He said he wasn't aware that the water was deep enough to affect his car.
