HOUSTON — In Greater Houston, floodwaters don't only come from the skies but from the rivers, creeks and bayous. The National Weather Service tracks these water levels multiple times a day and makes the information available online.

In Harris County, you can check on levels on the Harris County Flood Control website. There, you can check the status of bayous and creeks across the county by turning on different layers of the map.

The state also monitors water levels, which is updated multiple times a day. You can monitor that here on the state's site.
