It's a soggy Memorial Day in parts of Southeast Texas.

Up to 12 inches of rain is reported in the rice fields from Houston to Beaumont overnight. That's led to flooded streets and underpasses in the Beaumont area.

In Vidor, just east of Beaumont, police reported more than three feet of water beneath the Interstate Ten overpass over State Highway 105.

Beaumont fire officials report many underpasses were impassable because of flood waters overnight.

A flash flood warning was in effect until midmorning from northern Harris County to Beaumont to Orange.

In the Panhandle, golfball-size hail shattered house windows and ripped awnings in the town of Hedley, about 70 miles southeast of
Amarillo.
