Check bayou and creek levels around southeast Texas

Sunday, October 25, 2015

HOUSTON -- We are monitoring the bayous and creeks around the Houston area.

The Harris County Flood Warning System unveiled a new online interactive system, where people can monitor the situation.

When you click on the bayous and creeks, it will take you to a separate page that will give you the address and how close to full or out of banks the creeks and bayous are.

You can check at any point by clicking or tapping here.
