Early Wednesday morning, streets were filled with water up over the curb. In some spots, the sidewalks were covered, and water appeared only inches away from entering buildings.
A number of Galveston County offices have closed for Wednesday. The County Courts, District Courts, County Clerk's Office and County Tax Assessor-Collector's Office are all closed due to weather.
