Heavy rainfall in Southeast Texas continued to cause severe flooding in Houston Tuesday, with vehicles engulfed in water and major traffic jams hitting the state's most populous city. More than 11 inches (28 cm) of rain fell overnight on Houston, resulting in at least three deaths and bringing the total death toll to over 10. A state-of-emergency was declared by Texas Governor Greg Abbott on Monday. Up to a million people are currently without water, with more heavy rain expected in the region.
