Record Flooding in Houston

Record flooding tonight in Houston, as people are trapped in homes across the Texas city.  Many flood victims have been pulled from cars swallowed by flash floods.

The nation’s 4th largest city at a stand-still, submerged by as many as 16 inches of rain.  Major highways under water… public transit shut down… schools closed for a million students.

Officials say there has been more than 1000 water rescues, and authorities are struggling to keep up.

More than 1000 homes flooded…  100-thousand without power…  and 800 flights canceled.

More rain is possible tonight and the next few days.
