The mayor declared a local state of emergency, and is asking residents affected by the floods to contact the city.

By road or by river, Cedric Prosper made it to his home on Foster Street.

"It seems once I got through it, it seemed a little deeper than I thought it would be, but I was just hoping that I could make it," said Prosper whose street was flooded. "It's frustrating. I mean you want to see rain. We need rain, but whenever we get a real heavy rain, we always have this problem right here on this street."

The city wants to help residents with any flood damage, and the city manager says that's why the mayor declared a local state of emergency.

"Hopefully we will be able to at least look at the options to get state or federal help to help local businesses that were flooded. Also some of our residences that had some flood damage," said Brad Stafford, the Navasota city manager.

For residents wanting to submit a report by emailing the city at reportdamage@navasotatx.gov or call 936-825-6475.

When submitting, please include the following information:
- Your name, address, and phone number
- Type of damage (Flood/Water Damage; how many inches)?
- Is the damage covered by insurance?
- Are you currently relocated because of damage to the property?
