A tropical storm warning is in effect in the Houston area as Tropical Storm Bill begins to hit the coast. The storm is forecasted to bring heavy rains to the area over the next few days, along with the possibility of tropical storm force winds and tornadoes.

The storm is expected to add to the problems Texas has already experienced this spring due to torrential rains and flooding. Chris Cohen, host of Houston Public Media's "Houston Matters," joins Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson with the latest.
