Some Subdivisions North Of Houston Are Still Flooded

Parts of the Westador subdivision, near the intersection of I-45 and FM 1960, have high water and are without power.

Days after intense rains drenched Greater Houston, hundreds of houses and businesses across the region are still dealing with flooding.

That is what some residents of the Westador subdivision, located near the intersection of I-45 and FM 1960, are going through.

Residents like Ellen Angel, a middle school teacher who has lived at Westador for 12 years.

The street in front of her house was free of water on Thursday morning, but then a thunderstorm passed over and it flooded again.

“I’ve ripped out all the laminate floors, getting ready to rip out some tile and all the base boards. I’m gonna cut the dry wall cause it’s wet over a foot up high. So… My kitchen cupboards were all flooded and the bottoms so they’ll have to be replaced, so quite a bit of damage,” Angel explains.

She also lost her two cars and is without power. She has moved up to the second floor of her home with her son and pets.

Angel is getting by with the help of friends and neighbors who are taking supplies by pick-up truck and by boat.

Other times, she is kayaking herself to higher ground to get supplies.

Many Westador residents are asking for generators and gas to keep them on, because they don’t know when power will return.
