Overnight storms leave drivers stranded, cars flooded in Houston

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Overnight storms left a big mess across the Houston area, with some streets impassable and drivers stranded this morning.

There were trouble spots all over town, including the Eastex Freeway feeder at Beltway 8 and the North Freeway at West Mount Houston. But there were also some residents who didn't drive anywhere and still had their cars flooded!

The parking garage at the Calais apartments in Midtown took on water during the storms, and by the time the weather had moved through, many vehicles were nearly halfway submerged.

"Every single car covered in water and the emergency lights went on the cars," said Daniel Marrufo, whose car was flooded. "Kind of a helpless feeling."

Complex managers did come out to inspect the garage and have blocked the entrance.

The rain has since moved out and the sun is shining; small consolation to those who now must find a new mode of transportation.
