The National Weather Service in Houston/Galveston has issued a flood warning for the West Fork of the San Jacinto River in Humble. This river affects both Harris and Montgomery counties.

The following subdivisions should anticipate high waters: Northshore, Rivercrest, Forest Cove, and Belleau Woods. If you live in these neighborhoods, officials recommend taking precautions to avoid high water.

Also minor flooding is occurring at Cypress Creek, Little Cypress Creek at Becker Road, Spring Creek, and South Mayde Creek Near Greenhouse Road. The river flood warning was extended until further notice; however, the forecast is predicting Saturday morning for all areas. 

The NWS reports the subdivision on the south side of the creek, just west of Becker is experiencing street flooding. Water is close to some homes, but the creek is “at crest” and starting to slowly fall.

Spring Creek near Hegar Road is flooding onto Field Road and Hegar Road, making the roadways impassable. The creek continues to slowly rise, so there are possible future issues downstream of SH 249. 

The NWS is expecting Cypress Creek near Katy-Hockley Road to rise to near 158.5 feet by Friday morning. Portions of Sharp Road and Katy Hockley will likely flood and possibly become impassable later Thursday, along with areas downstream.

Monitor the river conditions with the Harris County Flood Warning System.
