Nearly a dozen Red Cross shelters have opened in the Houston area to help hundreds of flood evacuees after storms dumped more than a foot of rain.
A Red Cross statement Tuesday says 11 shelters have been assisting about 400 residents forced from their Houston-area homes due to the high water.
More rain is likely Tuesday as Houston tries to clean up. The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch through Wednesday morning.
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner says the city is returning to normal operations and advises drivers to take care on flooded roads.
