Homes and streets flooding in Texas City

Heavy rainfall over Texas City has sent flash flooding into the streets and some homes.

The area received more than nine inches of rain, and more is expected.

Eyewitness News crews were in the area this morning, and reported that the main roads in the area were passable, but many low-lying, side streets were flooded.

Quiana Simmons Jackson says she lost everything during Hurricane Harvey, and now, her home is flooded again.

"We had to grab what we can grab. My husband is out of town," Jackson said. "My neighbors are evacuated, but they came back and they rescued my family."

Jackson is not alone. There are flooded homes all over Texas City, and many people are at a loss about what to do next.

"We've got more rain coming. It's bad," Jackson said.



Texas City ISD cancelled school on Tuesday due to the high water. The College of the Mainland is also closed for the day.
