Texas residents evacuated and homes damaged as rivers reach levels seen during Hurricane Harvey

Intense flooding in Texas caused by strong storms and heavy rainfall has led to damaged homes, evacuation orders, and water rescues. The state has experienced multiple severe weather events since early April, including tornadoes, hailstorms, and excessive rainfall. Several counties, including Harris, Polk, and Walker, have been heavily affected, with historic flood levels reported in some areas. Emergency declarations have been issued for over a third of Texas counties, with more storms forecasted. Despite the severity of the flooding, it is not as widespread as during Hurricane Harvey in 2017. Additional severe thunderstorms are expected in the region, with the risk of more tornadoes.
