'It's bad': Water rescues begin as Imelda soaks east Texas

'It's bad': Water rescues begin as Imelda soaks east Texas  Rain from Tropical Depression Imelda deluged parts of Texas and Louisiana on Thursday, prompting hundreds of water rescues, a hospital evacuation and road closures in areas east of Houston that were hit hard by Hurricane Harvey two years ago. 

For most people in southeast Texas not dealing with flood-damaged property, Imelda is a slightly distant memory, with the floodwaters largely receded.

But in many areas, especially near Beaumont, some roadways and fields are still underwater.

Recently, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Beaumont office posted this video on Twitter of rancher herding their cattle out of flooded fields.

"We have seen an issue with livestock seeking higher ground along roadways," the tweet states. "Please use caution while traveling. Ranchers are busy trying to herd them to safer locations."

Those ranchers aren't the only ones dealing with drenched property. Above you can see scenes from the aftermath captured by our colleagues at the Beaumont Enterprise.
