HOUSTON – Flooding from a summer downpour Wednesday canceled events ahead of Houston’s fireworks show.

The city said its fairgrounds was flooded and people were told not to attend once scheduled 4th of July events there. A picture shared on social media showed the letters spelling out “Houston” floated in the flooded area.

The fireworks will rocket into the sky for people to see, safely, from home, the city said on social media.

Some areas received as much as five inches of rain, KTRK TV reported.
