Harris County Officials: Worst Is Finally Over

Some areas will see rising water for a few more days, but at a much slower and more manageable rate.

After two and a half days of severe flooding and rescue operations, Harris County officials say the worst is finally over.

County judge Ed Emmett held a briefing just a short time ago. He says some areas will see rising water for a few more days, but at a much slower and more manageable rate.

But Emmett says there are ongoing problems that will take a long time to resolve.

Parts of Highway 6 from Clay Road to Park Row will be closed for four to six weeks.

And officials anticipate a few homes near the Addicks and Barker Dams will flood as those reservoirs continue to fill up.
