Flash Flood Watch for The Woodlands

The National Weather Service has recently issued a Flash Flood Watch for The Woodlands and other surrounding areas.

Rain is definitely needed to saturate the dry ground, but it’s the rate at which it’s falling that is causing flash floods and high standing water in such short periods of time.

As always please stay aware of your surroundings. If water starts rising, find a local shelter or reach out for help.

Don’t drive through standing water assuming you can make it.
