Creeks, Rivers Continue to Flood Throughout Texas

By  | 

DALLAS -- Heavy rains brought minor street flooding, washed out some Fourth of July parades and fireworks shows and prompted more weather warnings across Texas Wednesday.

A total of 148 of the state's 254 counties were under either flash flood watches, flash flood warnings, flood warnings or a combination of watches and warnings Wednesday night.

Corpus Christi recorded 3.48 inches of rain by 6 PM Wednesday, more than enough to force cancellation of the city's annual Fourth of July parade.

A fireworks show was postponed until tomorrow. Corpus Christi had almost 10 inches of rain on Monday.
