Episode Narrative The combination of very deep tropical moisture with a slow-moving warm front and the approach of a strong upper level trough resulted in excessive rainfall across Harris and various surrounding counties. The ground became saturated on the 15th due to scattered convection before the more organized thunderstorms moved into the area shortly after midnight. These storms produced heavy rainfall due to their training nature. A brief break occurred during mid-day which allowed area creeks and bayous to recede before the onset of additional afternoon rainfall. There were four directly related drowning fatalities during this episode. Two deaths were in Harris County, one in Fort Bend County and the one in Liberty County.
Event Narrative Strong thunderstorm winds downed several one foot diameter trees and destroyed a nearby carport.
