We're still under flash flood warnings, so please stay inside.

As Imelda continues to bring catastrophic rains to southeast Texas today—Beaumont and Winnie are sadly receiving the worst of it—Houston continues to brace for more flash flooding into the late afternoon.   

Here's how social media is reacting.

If you hadn't heard...

Beaumont is in trouble.

Thankfully, the Cajun Navy is on the way to help.


There is severe flooding in Houston.

The airports are closed.

And yet you can't keep a good Houstonian down.

Houston, we have heroes.

Mattress Mack is opening his stores again.

In case you were wondering...

Oh yeah, the fire ant islands are back.

And because you could likely use a good laugh right about now...
