Videos show flooding, wind damage in Houston area from Hurricane Beryl


MATAGORDA, Texas – Heavy rains and powerful winds. Hurricane Beryl swept into Texas Monday doing what hurricanes do.

The Category 1 storm made landfall just before 4 a.m. knocking out power to more than 2 million homes and causing at least two deaths due to fallen trees.

Videos from across coastal areas near Houston show flooded streets and damage to trees and structures due to the winds.

The video below shows trees that toppled on top of a home in Cypress. The homeowner told KSAT that nobody was injured.

After making landfall, Beryl was downgraded to a tropical storm and had moved out of the Houston area by midday.

But state officials warned that flooding conditions could last for days.
