Just as the weekend was nearing an end and it seemed that the worst of the rain was behind us after a glorious sunny Sunday, a new storm was brewing over Houston. For those who live in high-rise apartments, the unpredictable weather provided some breathtaking views of the downtown skyline.

CultureMap executive editor at large Shelby Hodge captured several dramatic shots from the 15th floor of the Huntingdon in River Oaks while CultureMap contributor Jane Howze snapped some electrifying photos from the 17th floor at 2727 Kirby

The Harris County Flood Control District reported that heavy and persistent rainfall produced up to five inches of rain throughout Harris County on Friday and Saturday, resulting in high water levels in bayous and creeks, and possibly water in homes and businesses in southwest Harris County near Keegans Bayou, in Pasadena and LaPorte near Armand Bayou, and in areas near Clear Creek in south Harris County. 

Harris County residents are urged to report house flooding by completing a flood survey as soon as possible at the Harris County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management’s website.
