Former FOX 4 meteorologist talks about evacuating twice

- It’s not the kind of reunion we hoped for when we caught up with former FOX 4 News Meteorologist Maria Sotolongo.

She evacuated her Houston home over the weekend and ended up leaving twice.

She explained her home backs up to the flooded Buffalo Bayou. She sought shelter at her sister’s house a few streets away. Then the water started to rise there too.

“My family and I decided to leave from my sister's, who lives close to the bayou and now come to my mother's. So we have evacuated twice within the span of 24 hours,” she said.

Those attempting to evacuate face both flood and tornado warnings in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

The water is now up to the roof line in some Houston homes.
