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 said Sunday that 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.
Areas south of Fort Worth received 5 to 8 inches, and Austin officials banned watercraft from Lady Bird Lake and elsewhere because of fast-moving water and debris.
Rains pummeled the Houston area later Sunday and a tornado warning was issued for the region.
There were flood warnings in the San Antonio region and forecasts called for up to 4 inches of rain in some spots.
