Updated Sunday with links to Houston-area webcams
Cameras streaming video straight to the internet allow us to see what’s happening in the Texas flooding from afar.
As Hurricane Harvey hit, we published links to webcams on the Texas coast, but many of those cameras were (not surprisingly) knocked out of commission by high winds or loss of power or just turned off by owners who wanted to save their cameras. (That list of Corpus Christi-area cameras is at the bottom of this post.)
Now, our attention has turned to the deadly flooding in Houston. Here are some webcams to see it for yourself, including some with time-lapse features to let you see into the recent past:
Houston Transtar has a ton of traffic cams showing the status of many Houston-area highways. Current status: Not good.
Rice University webcams show how much water is in Brays Bayou near the medical center complex on downtown Houston’s southeastern edge.
Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital offers a sky-high view of Houston’s western suburb and highways that have been eerily empty.
Here’s the live feed from George Bush Intercontinental Airport north of Houston.
Sacred Heart Catholic School has a webcam of its flooded athletic field in Crosby, just northeast of Houston.
The Hotel Galvez’s webcam offers a view from Galveston, showing the beach at the Gulf of Mexico.
