HOUSTON - (AP) - Storms in the Houston area that dumped several inches of rain have left thousands of people without electricity and forced dozens of high-water rescues.
The National Weather Service on Sunday reported the area received more than 6 inches of rain since Saturday.
Officials had no immediate reports of anyone hurt or significant damage. Part of the roof of a convenience store in Sugar Land collapsed.
CenterPoint Energy had about 9,000 homes and businesses still without electricity Sunday. Nearly 45,000 customers lost power Saturday night.
Emergency personnel responded to at least 50 calls about people who drove into high water and had to be rescued.
The National Weather Service says Montgomery County, just north of Houston, had some hail the size of golf balls before the storm moved along.
