None of these floods compare to that one. Water was up to the power lines on some parts of Hamblen Rd and nearly to the roof of Jack's Convenience (Grocery Then) Store.
Anything remotely near Lake Houston, Kingwood Lake, or the San Jacinto River was under water.
Kingwood High School had about 5 to 7 feet of water in it. Much of Kingwood Lakes Village & Kingwood Country Club were under water. Randall's on Kingwood Drive & West Lake Houston Pky had water in it all the way from Lake Houston itself. Best Buy and Toys R US in Humble had water in them.
So much of Forest Cove & North Shore were just washed away to never be rebuilt. Kinda depressing to think how many houses and families were involved.
Actually the water rose up into Wendy's on Lk Houston Pkway then on south. Can't say if it was Ben's Branch, San Jacinto River, or Lake Houston that overflowed or all three. We had 24" of rain in 24 hours. Kingwood was an Island for 3 days.
