50.7 Major lowland flooding begins as homes in Richmond begin to flood and many homes in Simonton and Thompsons have water in them. Many homes in the Oyster Creek Farms subdivison have water in them due to significant flooding up Flat Bank Creek and there is major flow across the flood plain into Oyster Creek near Harris Reservoir and the Ramsey Unit Prison Farm.
49.8 Massive lowland flooding occurs with many homes in Simonton and Thompsons flooded. There is major flow across the flood plain into Oyster Creek near Harris Reservoir and the Ramsey Unit Prison Farm.
48 Flooding begins in vicinity of gage with homes threatened upstream in Simonton and downstream in Thompsons. Backwater flooding up Flat Bank Creek puts water in homes in Missouri City and water passes through the flood plain and enters Oyster Creek north of Harris Reservoir.
47.6 Water is in the Simonton area upstream from the gage. Significant backwater flooding up Flat Bank Creek threatens homes in Missouri City. Water enter Oyster Creek through culverts and through the flood plain north of Harris Reservoir.
46.1 Backwater up Flat Bank Creek downstream from gage threatens homes in Missouri City. Minor flow passes into Oyster Creek through culverts and water is very close to passing through flood plain just north of Harris Reservoir into Oyster Creek.
