Might be a good place to start posting road closures, street
flooding, who's got gas/water/ice etc., Date and Time your post so we can keep current.

1030 Friday
Northpark/Woodland Hills Exxon OUT of gas.
Northpark Mobile Gas with short lines. Speedy stop fully stocked. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

Good idea! Thank you! 

Saturn --- 6 years ago -

Earlier this morning I drove up to the Kroger gas station at NP and 494 and the wait time for a pump was only a few minutes.

However, all the stations up and down NP were packed with cars waiting for a pump, plus, the traffic on NP was a mess.

After leaving Kroger's I drove home -via- Ford Road and came into Kingwood the back way.

It was easy peasy ...

1145 Friday
59 South clear to the Airport Exit. 59 North clear but looking typical for a Friday. Passed several gas stations with very short lines.

Exxon on mills branch and KWD/WLHP are out of all gas. 

Zapper009 --- 6 years ago -

Yesterday was gas-up day folks...

Convenience store at NP and Woodland Hills still had water about 2.5 hours ago.

Krogers was out of almost all canned gpoods and H2O...

Northpark was already backing up to McDonald's an hour ago. Stopped into Walgreens. Was a moderate wait for my Rx. Ladies in line with me were absolutely freaking out over misinformation. I set them straight.

9:30 pm Fri

I got gas at HEB (KW) this evening. Some pumps were out, others not. But the tanker was there refilling them so I'm sure they will have gas in all pumps now, at least for a while.

Road conditions this morning? 

dkeller --- 6 years ago -

Road conditions this morning??

You have to go out? I feel for you, be careful.

Sorry, I'm just staying in; don't know how it is out there.

Be safe. 

Gigix4 --- 6 years ago -

Just got this from Nextdoor:

The bayou on Northpark Dr between Loop 494 and Russell Palmer is over flowing and down to one lane... Montgomery County is being notified may want to avoid that street for the time being.
Turn around don't drown 

combatkenpo --- 6 years ago -

Just ran down from Bear Branch to Northpark Business Center past Russel Palmer. Northpark is flooding in the usual places by the fireworks place, etc, but other than that there's just standard roadside pooling. Safety note: I was in our F250 4x4 and I'd not take the wife's car out in what I just came back from. 

TinktheSprite --- 6 years ago -

I wish the City(s) prepared more for the heavy rain. Seems all the local bayous are over grown with grass. that will prevent drainage. Watched the closest bayou by our home. Grass is tall there and on the median, too? What give, CoH?? Be careful out there. Stay home if you can. 

insanotard --- 6 years ago -

How about west lake Houston. Got work tomorrow. Already called on today. Should I do it again tomorrow? 

TinktheSprite --- 6 years ago -

Insanotard: Be safe!

11 pm Saturday



fuzz81 --- 6 years ago -

First band has been stalled just west of us for hours. A second feeder band is growing now too.

Stay safe everyone. 

fuzz81 --- 6 years ago -

KHOU just reported they're releasing from lake Conroe. 

Joe Blow --- 6 years ago -

How about a Lake Houston release? 

SineadORebellion --- 6 years ago -

Damn it's coming down hard! 

DVaz --- 6 years ago -

How about a Lake Houston release?

Did they change LH dam? It used to just spill over. 

Daisy03 --- 6 years ago -

What about the West lake Houston bridge?-into kingwood 

DVaz --- 6 years ago -

What about the West lake Houston bridge?-into kingwood

In 1994 it was closed because Lake Houston got too high. Now, the meteorologists are saying this is going to raise the San Jacinto & Lake Houston higher than then! If that happens it will be catastrophic. Ike would pale in comparison. In 1994 Kingwood Greens, Royal Shores, much of Riverchase (all three before they were built) + Kingwood Lakes, Forest Cove below the "Hill" all flooded bad. Deer Ridge Estates, Kings Lake Estates, & Kings River + Estates didn't exist. I'm not sure how they will fair. Harbor Cove will be under water at least up to the YMCA.

That's if this is as bad or worse than October 1994.... 

reh6110 --- 6 years ago -

If I remember correctly the 94 flood was due partly because the dam broke or the release was not controlled properly. When I looked this morning the river was at 54'. In 94 it was at 66'. I know we are expecting several more days of rain but I'm guessing it won't rise 12 more feet unless that happens again. 

KW1997 --- 6 years ago -

reh - you remember correctly. The problem was the release of water from Conroe. That turned what would have been a couple of feet of water in places like Forest Cove into 10 feet of water. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

West Lake Houston Bridge: I just came back and went over within the hour with ZERO issues. There is a majorly big tree down in one of the inbound lanes by the YMCA.

I'm surprised that KW dosent seem to even have high water yet in areas that usually do collect water in heavy rains. By the Y and at Kings Harbor it usually floods. It's good news for us! I think that lull we had last night with no rain and time for previous rain fall to drain was a blessing. Stay safe 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 6 years ago -

SJRA has announced a controlled release from the dam at Conroe. 

TinktheSprite --- 6 years ago -

Despite controlled release from Lake Conroe, the news says to expect "historic" proportions in the San Jac West Fork. I hope the people in those stupid apartments have left already? 

My hood is da Wood --- 6 years ago -

The Kroger at NP and LHPW closed about 9:30. Manager said corporate didn't want to give customers the feeling it was safe to drive. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

The KW Dr exit off 59 is under water now. Yikes.

TinktheSprite --- 6 years ago -

Announced on channel 2 at 1117 that the DDOT has announced do not I repeat do not get out on the roads for two days unless it's a life threatening situation 

KingwoodTexasResident --- 6 years ago -

We are flooded at the apartments by skarkys, water is starting to enter 1st floor! If anyone has boats or large trucks to help please do! 

DVaz --- 6 years ago -

I read the WLH bridge is closed already...? 

TinktheSprite --- 6 years ago -

^^ Read that, too this morning. 

RedMulch --- 6 years ago -

I heard they are closing KWD today as we speak. I came inbound on Northpark about 10 minutes ago and it is fine.
