HOUSTON (AP) – Water in a Houston-area neighborhood along a creek that’s overflowing has reached the roofline of single-story homes.
People can be heard yelling for help from inside homes in the Cypress Forest Estates subdivision in northern Harris County also can be heard as a steady procession of rescue boats head into the area.

One man, Joe Garcia, wearing a blue jacket and a New York Mets cap, was carrying his German Shepherd, Heidi, in chest-deep water before he was picked up by a boat. Garcia said he floated out a tub of his belongings, then went back in to get his dog.
The current is swift and the waters have continued to rise Monday.
