ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Tuesday afternoon's heavy rains flooded several streets in Angelina County.

The hardest hit area was Farm-to-Market Road 706.

Mossey Creek road became a homemade waterpark for children.

"I was surprised," Christina Gamboa said. "It picked up quick."

None of the homes on the street suffered any serious flooding, but it still worried the residents.

"There was no flooding and then she said, 'Nana the road's covered up with water,'" Ada Seale said. "That's when we looked outside. It hasn't been this bad for a while."

One resident said the area took on a heavy amount of rain in a short time.

"It rained real hard for a period of time," Kevin Black. "Our rain gauge showed 3.25 inches of rain."
