Torrential rains have brought more flooding to the Houston area as emergency officials urge motorists to stay home until the water recedes.
About 6 inches of rain fell across much of Harris County, including Houston, and more swamped suburbs west of the city.
Authorities warned motorists of more than a dozen areas of high water along highways. Fire officials said they've conducted about two-dozen water rescues Tuesday, mostly pulling drivers from their stranded cars.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Houston officials launched emergency operations early Tuesday following the heavy rain that began a day earlier. The National Weather Service has issued flash-flood warnings for the region.
The same storm system brought widespread flooding to San Antonio and other areas Monday.
