Heavy rain flooded parts of Galveston Friday morning, including streets in the Strand Historical District and areas near Ball High School, authorities are reporting.

Flooding has prompted the city to suspend all Island Transit services. The National Weather Service tweeted it had received public reports of almost 2 feet of water on some roadways.

Roads outside of Ball High School have 2 feet of water and some streets in the Strand Historical District are flooded up to the curb.

By about 10:30 a.m., the rain had lessened slightly and shifted toward Bolivar, said Matt Lanza, a meteorologist with Space City Weather.

The rain Friday put Galveston over 18 inches for the month, likely making September one of the city's five wettest months on record, Lanza added.

Meanwhile, counties along the coast are under a flash flood watch through noon Friday amid showers and thunderstorms that are expected to produce heavy rainfall.
