A number of areas in and around Greater Houston continue to experience flooding after severe weather Monday (April 18, 2016). More than a foot of rain fell on the region, flooding dozens of neighborhoods and leaving at least five people dead in Harris County. According to Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, three areas of the city were hit particularly hard: Greens Bayou, the Northwest sector, and Braes Bayou. And now, the region braces for the potential for additional rain and more flooding. Many area school districts are closed, as is the University of Houston.

On this edition of Houston Matters, News 88.7's Gail Delaughter talks with Harris County Judge Ed Emmett. We also check in with the Jeff Lindner, meteorologist with the Harris County Flood Control District, and Dan Reilly, warning coordination meteorologist with the National Weather Service Houston/Galveston office.
