DALLAS A strong storm system has deluged North Texas with up to 4 inches of rain, triggered flash-flood warnings and prompted a high-water rescue of a group of children.
Dallas police say emergency personnel rescued five children trapped Thursday morning by rising waters along a creek. All five were taken to a hospital for evaluation. Authorities say the boys had skipped school and gathered along a creek.
Strong winds destroyed a mobile home Thursday near Joshua, about 20 miles south of Fort Worth. Johnson County Emergency Management Coordinator Jamie Moore says a mother and child were injured but their injuries didn't appear to be life-threatening.
Trees and limbs downed by high winds fell on North Texas power lines. Dallas-based utility Oncor reported nearly 40,000 customers without power by mid-afternoon Thursday
