Rita Teasing Houston

The sky has become dark with layers of billowy dark gray clouds. There are strong gusts of wind - debris flying around in the streets. Still no rain.

The police chief has announced that everyone should stay where they are for the duration of the storm. Cars on the road will be stopped by Houston police department (HPD).

The wind is still hot and damp but...no rain.

The storm has hurricane force winds for 200 miles diameter. Even though the eye has moved east, Houston may experience hurricane winds and rain for 12 hours!

I would have preferred the storm to pass through during daylight but my preference did not seem to affect the storm.

Since they're not talking about it anymore on TV, I'm assuming the traffic jams have cleared up. Is that the case?

Keep the reports coming! This is better coverage than the mainstream media. Good luck!

The traffic has cleared. There were major traffic jams near Dallas this morning due to the bus tragedy but I think that has cleared up too.

I am on the second floor of a two story building. So far it feels pretty solid.
