Right now the city of Houston is in the midst of torrential downpours that have caused massive flooding.
The southwestern part of the city has reportedly experienced over 5″ of rain during a 6 hour time period beginning Wednesday morning.
As the rains continue to pound down, so does the flooding and storm damage. So far the floodwaters have caused school closures, destruction of freeways, roads and left many stranded like a local bus driver and two passengers.
The trio was saved by local resident, Carlos Castellanos, according to KTRK-TV.
In the fifty-five second video shared by a local ABC Houston station on Twitter, Castellanos can be seen leading a METRO Houston female bus driver to safety.

The video begins with a passenger helping the unidentified female driver out of the bus and into the arms of Castellanos, the man in a white t-shirt.
After Castellanos grabs her, he carries her through the deepest part of the water.
Then about forty-seven seconds into the eye witness’s video, the woman is able to stand and begins walking for herself once the water recedes to slightly above her thighs.
Once she begins to walk, Castellanos points her towards safety.
ABC 13 Houston predicts that the city will receive up to 6″ of rain on Wednesday and some areas will receive more.
Media outlet also reported that by the end of the week the chances of rain will fall.
As for now weather.com meteorologist Chris Dolce explained that this weather pattern will continue until Thursday morning. The beginnings of it started when , “A stalled front draped along the southeast Texas coast interacting with Gulf of Mexico moisture brought the torrential downpours to Houston early Wednesday.”
Houston is no stranger to extreme weather.
