DALLAS (AP) — Another storm system moving through rain-soaked Texas has brought flash flood warnings and high-water rescues of residents and motorists overwhelmed by torrential rains.

National Weather Service senior meteorologist Eric Martello says parts of Dallas-Fort Worth received up to 5 inches of rain overnight. Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport so far this year has received nearly 21 inches of rain, some 6 inches above normal.

WFAA-TV in Dallas reports Johnson County, south of Fort Worth, received 5 to 8 inches, requiring the evacuation of people from their homes.

Heavy rains also brought flood warnings to the San Antonio region and forecasts call for up to 4 inches of rain in Bexar (bayr) and surrounding counties.

In the Austin area authorities are rerouting traffic because high water is making roads impassable.
