The Friends of the Houston Texas South Stake Facebook page uploaded photos and information about the Houston Texas Temple. According to the information, the temple itself is in no imminent danger, but the grounds have become flooded and “water is now at the level of the front fountain of the temple.”

The full update from the Houston Temple Presidency states:

“We know that all of our temple workers are very concerned about the storm and its effect on the temple and the citizens of this area. With the torrential rains, the Cypress Creek has risen about 20 feet and water is now at the level of the front fountain of the temple. The ancillary building has already taken on some water with this flood. As you are probably aware, the forecast is for more rain in the coming days.

Although we do not think that the temple itself is in any imminent danger, we feel that it would be appropriate to invite our temple family to unite our faith and prayers as we send a special petition to the Lord to stay the rain enough that the waters might start to subside.

Please know that our prayers are also with each of you and your families as we face these unprecedented weather conditions.”
