Strong storms moved through the Houston area today, bringing along several watches and warnings, high winds and even some funnel clouds.

Tuesday night, the small town of Danbury in Brazoria County had many flooded streets and front yards. An Eyewitness News viewer sent in a picture of people kayaking on Avenue C. Rain was steady for hours.

San Leon has particularly hard hit. Almost 7 inches of rain fell this afternoon. There were reports of high water in several spots there. A funnel cloud was also reported in San Leon, as well as Conroe, San Leon and Galveston.

Flooding remains a concern across the area. A Flash Flood Warning for Galveston County is in effect until 10:45pm. A Flash Flood Watch until from 4am-7pm Wednesday includes Houston and Galveston, as well as the following counties: Brazoria, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, Liberty, Matagorda, Polk, San Jacinto and Trinity.


And just a reminder - roads are designed to flood so that your home doesn't. That means you want to avoid curb parking.

In Montgomery County, a portion of FM 149 in Montgomery County was shut down due to rising flood waters. At least one pick-up truck was stranded in high water this morning. Most drivers stayed away.

"It's way too dangerous for anybody to go that way," said Gary Conley. "I told the wife I can go through it, but when I got to the other end of the bridge, it wasn't worth it. In 10 years, I've never seen it like this."

Water is also creeping up to homes in the area.
