Jeff Lindner with the Harris County Flood Control District says authorities are keeping a close eye on several creeks and rivers across the county.

Authorities in Harris County are keeping their eyes on several creeks and rivers as strong storms are expected to dump as many as 6-10" of rain through the overnight hours.

Water is above the top of the banks on Little Cypress Creek at Becker Road and South Mayde Creek, at both Greenhouse and Saums roads. Officials said flooding in these areas may be minor, but was expected.

White Oak Bayou at Heights is three feet from bankfull, according to the Harris County Flood Control District.

People living in River Crestbella Woods, North Shore, anything south of Hamlin Road on the north side of the river, and Forest Cove areas are urged to be alert as the river may not crest until Sunday.

Residents living near the West Fork may see flooding up until Wednesday of next week.
