HOUSTON—People in the flood-prone Houston area braced themselves as flash-flood warnings have been issued amid another wave of rain that's sending rivers and bayous over their banks.

The National Weather Service issued a flash-flood watch through Saturday evening for Houston and surrounding counties.

The agency says the region saw about 1 to 3 inches of rain late Thursday and early Friday, with some places getting 3 to 6 inches.

Those storms pelted the Houston area with golf-ball sized hail and flooded streets, leading to several high-water rescues.

Major flooding was forecast Saturday for the Trinity River northeast of Houston, and other waterways like the Neches River in East Texas also were overflowing.
