Houston news, Texas news.

More than 50 horses were saved after being stuck in chest water on a ranch north of Houston, Texas, when heavy storms caused "catastrophic" floods in the area.

A video shows the future lifeguards of the Cypress Trails equestrian center in Humble, Texas, who are fighting to get the horses into the murky, rising waters - like horse-drawn buildings are completely flooded.

A woman is swimming to get to some of the horses stranded in a nearby flooded field.

Remnants of Tropical Storm Imelda, who landed south of Houston, caused storms that covered the area under heavy showers and widespread flooding.

Meteorologists have said up to 55 inches of rain could fall in some areas, the strongest since Hurricane Harvey hit Texas in 2017.
