It's no secret Texas has gotten a lot of rain over the last few days. Some places have seen a month or two worth of rain in just as many days.

This has lead to widespread flooding, especially in and around Houston as well as the rest of the southeastern part of the Lone Star State.

The YouTube playlist above has more than a dozen videos of the flooding, including drone footage of flooded homes, people kayaking through flooded streets and the usual people driving through flooded roads.

It's nearly impossible to get around since a lot of roads look like these:

Even semi-trucks are getting stuck in the floodwaters, which is why you should NEVER drive through flooded roads.

But who needs to go anywhere when your office looks like this?

This is an incredible amount of rain, and even the BBC "across the pond" has taken notice, showing their audience what could possibly cause this much rain in one spot.

This will likely be the last day of rain for the Southern Plains, and they may get a few days of dry weather, which should help to dry them out.
