HOUSTON — Some street flooding has been reported in Houston after storms dumped several inches of rain and cut power to thousands of homes and businesses.

The National Weather Service says a weak cold front moved through the Houston area Friday. Parts of Harris County had more than 6 inches of rain.

An underground parking garage at an apartment complex flooded, with water and debris nearly up to the windows of some vehicles.

CenterPoint Energy reported about 1,600 customers without electricity Friday afternoon as crews worked to restore power.

Forecasters say the outlook for the Houston area includes a chance for showers through the weekend.
