HOUSTON — Heavy rain in parts of Texas from the remnants of Tropical Depression Imelda have prompted hundreds of water rescues, a hospital evacuation and flooding compared to Hurricane Harvey two years ago.

Although amount of predicted rainfall is massive — forecasters say some places could see 40 inches (100 centimeters) or more this week — Imelda’s deluge is largely targeting areas east of Houston, including the small town of Winnie and the city of Beaumont.

Still, the Houston area faced heavy rains Thursday, leading forecasters to issue a flash flood emergency through midday Thursday for Harris County. In that area, forecasters said 3 to 5 inches (7.5 centimeters to 12.5 centimeters) of rain is possible per hour.
