Texas Rain

By  | 

Some rivers and streams remain high in North Texas after a weekend of torrential rains caused flash flooding that killed at least one person.

The Trinity River in Dallas is in flood from levee to levee. The rains have moved eastward from the area into Southeast Texas, which was under a severe thunderstorm watch this morning.

Up to seven inches of rain fell in parts of Dallas yesterday, causing high-rising floodwaters that led to evacuations and stranded motorists.

Dallas police says a woman drowned in flooded Turtle Creek yesterday in North Dallas. A police spokesman says she's believed to have died when floodwaters swept her car from a city street.

Some homes in the White Rock Lake area of east Dallas were flooded, forcing evacuations. And a retaining wall on the lake's spillway has been damaged. There's no damage to the lake dam.
