Texas flooding: Imelda rains, flooding 'worse than (Hurricane) Harvey'
First responders were overwhelmed by 911 calls for high water rescues Thursday as Tropical Depression Imelda drenched East Texas with unrelenting rain measured in feet.
Authorities in Jefferson County, east of Houston, said some localized areas have seen more than 40 inches of rain in the last three days. More was coming.
"The Flash Flood Emergency has been continued and expanded," the National Weather Service office in Houston said. "This is an incredibly dangerous, life-threatening situation."
