More Rain on the Way for Flood-Ravaged Texas
Torrential rainfall continues to overwhelm rivers in Texas, and a slow-moving storm system will add even more water to flood-ravaged towns through the weekend.
In the past 60 days, about three feet of rain has fallen in eastern Texas, even closing down parts of Interstate 35 near San Pedro after six inches of rainfall fell Thursday morning alone. Areas west of San Antonio also received up to a half of foot of rain this morning, producing flash flooding.
Video taken near Cibolo, east of San Antonio, shows lightning illuminating a pitch-black sky as thunderstorms hit at 3 a.m. The resident called the weather event a “mesmerizing display of lightning and loud thunder.”
