A major rainfall event is unfolding in west and northwest Harris County. Some locations have seen four inches of rainfall in one hour. Continued heavy rain will cause rises in creeks and bayous. Hail, some the size of golf balls, has been reported.
 
The National Weather Service (NWS) will likely issue multiple watches and warnings over the course of the evening and into the morning.
 
Some things to keep in mind:
 
[b]- Stay put and avoid driving; go to and stay at a safe location.
 
- Park your car in your driveway, not in the street
 
- Do not drive through floodwaters, Turn Around Don't Drown!
 
- Never drive around barricades! Avoid underpasses and low-lying areas
 
- If water is rising inside your vehicle, seek refuge on top; if your vehicle is sinking, get out
 
- If trapped in a building, go to its highest level
 
- If your home is flooding, do not climb into a closed attic because you may get trapped there
 
- Have a way to get emergency alerts; listen to authorities for information and instructions
 
- Avoid wading in floodwater; it can contain dangerous debris, contamination, wildlife or downed power lines
 
- Use a generator or other gasoline powered machinery only outdoors and away from windows
 
- In the event of a life threatening emergency, please contact 9-1-1.
