Houston - Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport canceled all commercial flights Sunday after flooding inundated access roads, further isolating Texas' largest city.

The airport, a US hub for flights to Mexico, announced the cancellation on its website amid catastrophic flooding in the Houston area from Tropical Storm Harvey.

The city's only other airport, Hobby International, had earlier stopped all flights "due to standing water in runways."
