Near the Lamar University area on the south side of Beaumont, catastrophic flooding has resulted from incredibly high volumes of rain associated with the remnants of Imelda. Rain fell at rates approaching 6 inches per hour and reached totals of over 33 inches just to the southwest of town with rain still falling.
Homes were inundated and roads flooded with feet of water near the intersection of Avenue A and Highway 287.
