Unfortunately, the big story today isn't Independence Day, it's all the flash flooding we've seen in the Houston area. We are under a flash flood watch until 9 p.m. tonight.
The flooding forced the City of Houston to cancel its big July 4th event Freedom Over Texas. The field where the concerts were supposed to happen is under water.
The Houston Fire Department received about 63 calls from stranded drivers and the Houston Police Department received 127 calls. So far, officials have towed at least 65 vehicles from the roadways.
