The area may have seen a short break in rain but another round of thunderstorms and showers will hammer Houston early Saturday morning through midday, CNN Meteorologist Derek Van Dam said.
The region has seen storms moving over the same location for hours at a time — known as training — Van Dam said.
Houstonians will see up to 3 inches of rain Saturday, and areas affected by storms may see heavier showers with up to 5 inches.
Over the weekend, the heavy rain will shift eastward toward Alabama and the southern Appalachians, Van Dam said. As the storm moves east, clusters of storms could produce more flash flood threats, the center said.
Flooding and tornado-like damage
Other residents found themselves stranded after roads quickly flooded Friday evening, some opting to spend the night at gas stations, unable to return home.
Some drivers that left their cars on flooded streets returned to find their wheels missing.
The Harris County Flood Control District warned low-lying roads may be impacted by water coming out of the San Jacinto River — which has crested and is now falling — at US 59.
