Car stranded as flood waters continue to rise on Sweeny streets

SWEENY, Texas (KTRK) -- Residents in Sweeny have begun reporting damage nearly a day and a half after downpours first started to impact their area.

Early Saturday morning, ABC13 crews checked out parts of the city for street flooding and damaged homes.

They quickly spotted a stranded car in high flood waters on Azalea Drive off of Ashley-Wilson Road. That driver said their car was not able to move as the water continued to rise.

Reporter TJ Parker spoke to several families who said the water also began to come into their homes.

Authorities warned that high water levels may lead to floating debris, submerged objects and other hazards that are safety risks.

Officials from Sweeny Public Works were also out putting barricades in neighborhoods in effort to decrease flood damage.

More storms are reportedly on the way from southwest Texas and will be bringing rain into Saturday evening.
