At least 5 dead in Houston flooding

More than a foot of rain deluged parts of Houston on Monday, leaving five people dead as surging waters flooded homes and highways for thousands of residents who were warned to stay inside.

At least 1,000 homes were flooded in Harris County, and some people were trapped in their homes or attics.

Five people were found dead inside submerged vehicles, including two in a car that drove around a barricade and into a flooded underpass.
